2018 Sujal Parikh Symposium for Health and Social Justice:
An Interdisciplinary Approach to Health Disparities

Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018
U-M Biomedical Science Research Building | 109 Zina Pitcher Place, Ann Arbor
10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Registration Now Open!

The 2018 Sujal M. Parikh Symposium for Health and Social Justice will focus on interdisciplinary collaborations to improve health/healthcare at home and abroad. Health inequity is too big a problem for individual disciplines – let alone individuals – to tackle alone. Meaningful progress requires teams of providers, policy makers, researchers, engineers, and more, bringing their diverse expertise together to address complex problems with political, economic, and socio-cultural causes. Join us for an exploration of teamwork that crosses boundaries for a common goal!

In addition to panel presentations featuring unique U-M interdisciplinary projects and a keynote from UCLA’s Timothy Brewer, MD, MPH, Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary and Cross-Cultural Affairs, there will be a poster session and student photo and essay competitions. The event is free and U-M students and faculty are welcome to attend, as well as interested participants from other institutions and organizations. Poaster abstracts are due Aug. 31, 2018.
