Second biennial conference aimed towards increasing knowledge about health equity and sharing best practices to reduce health disparities that affect underserved and vulnerable populations in Pennsylvania. The focus at this year’s conference will be the impact of chronic diseases and its associated risk factors for diverse populations, particularly for immigrants/refugees, as well as the role that socioeconomic differences, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, disabilities, etc., play in creating health disparities. It includes, but it is not limited to, cultural competence, language issues, health literacy, as well as the impact of the social determinants of health in achieving health equity.Registration coming soon.
