41st Annual Minority Health Conference
February 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health’s Minority Health Conference — the largest and longest-running student-led health conference in the country — aims to raise awareness around minority health and mobilize students, academics and community members to take action for change.
This year’s conference theme is Truth to Power: Exercising Political Voice to Achieve Health Equity.
Truth to Power recognizes a critical need for a more just and truthful world to improve our society. Historically, the courageous voices of people with less access to power have fueled movement-making and actions to disrupt resistive power structures. This year’s conference will focus on the tools and approaches required to uplift marginalized voices, embolden effective leadership, and create policy that is community-driven and grounded in equity.
Can’t attend the conference in person? Join us for the 22nd Annual William T. Small Jr. Keynote Lecture Webcast, followed by a question and answer session on Friday, February 28, 2020, at 2 p.m. EST. An email with the link to access the webcast will be sent to all participants on Wednesday, February 26. If you do not receive a link by close of business, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information and directions to the Friday Center can be found on their website.
