The Ninth Annual National Conference on Health Disparities will be held in collaboration with the 2016 National Environmental Justice Conference & Training Program, with the theme of “A National Dialogue for Building Healthy Communities.” The mission of the conference is to focus on policies, research interventions, and programs that address prevention, social determinants, and personal responsibility in reducing health disparities and promoting health equity and environmental justice.
The Conference invites student submissions for a poster session. The session will be included in a Student Research Forum that will also include student roundtable discussions, a keynote address, and dynamic interactive workshops.
Preferred abstracts will relate to the full range of health disparities and environmental health in the basic sciences, clinical sciences, population/behavioral/social sciences and environmental sciences.
Students are strongly encouraged to focus on one or more of the following areas: cancer; cardiovascular disease; diabetes; environmental health; human trafficking/human enslavement; and infectious diseases.
