Health Disparities Symposium

Join us on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, for our Fourth Annual Health Disparities Symposium, co-sponsored by the NYU-Health + Hospitals Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the NYU Department of Population Health, and the NYU School of Medicine Office of Diversity Affairs.

The Symposium program will feature a series of short, engaging talks on the work being done to address health disparities and to achieve health equity, a panel discussion on controversies in population health, a listening session on community perspectives of research, and a poster session and awards ceremony. Full agenda coming soon!

The objectives of the Health Disparities Symposium are to:

  • Create a space to discuss health disparities and present the work being done by community partners, faculty, staff, clinicians, and students at NYU, NYC Health + Hospitals, and beyond to address these disparities and to achieve health equity
  • Facilitate connections, build networks, and foster interdisciplinary collaborations for health disparities research and activities among faculty, staff, students, clinicians, community partners, policymakers, healthcare systems, funders, industry, and the private sector
  • Provide a forum for bidirectional education and dissemination between community and researchers, and a venue through which students can learn of opportunities for involvement

The event will take place in Farkas Auditorium, located at 550 First Avenue in NYU Langone Health’s Tisch Hospital.
