45th Annual Minority Health Conference

February 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Event Navigation

The 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. The conference was founded and is led by students at the Gillings School of Global Public Health, UNC-Chapel Hill.

We are excited to announce this year’s theme: The Building Blocks to Well-Being: Connections Between Health and Stress.

The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age, as well as the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life that impact health outcomes (Healthy People 2030). One of the primary methods by which these factors influence health is through the mental and physical stress they can place on individuals and communities — with intergenerational life cycle impacts. In this year’s conference, we will explore the social determinants of health, the stress they can cause, and their impacts on the short and long-term well-being of minority communities.
