The Health Disparities and Social Justice Conference at DePaul University will provide a training opportunity to increase public health skills in identifying and addressing a wide variety of health disparities in diverse communities. It offers a valuable context for dialogue among a range of health and community experts who share DePaul’s mission to address social injustices and community health practices in marginalized groups. A special focus on ‘Latino Health’ will be central to this year’s conference. This conference is provided free-of-charge to those interested in public health.
The conference will take place at DePaul University’s DePaul Center, 1 E. Jackson Blvd, Chicago, Illinois, on Friday, February 7th, 2014 from 9:00am-4:00pm. Presentations will take the form of skills-building workshops. Sessions will be focused on some aspect of the intersection of health disparities and Latino health among diverse populations, such as: communities of color, LGBT people, immigrants, people with disabilities, low-income families, seniors/elders, and/or youth. In addition to the workshops and keynote speaker, a community lunch-hour session will include opportunities for networking and discussion.
Health disparities will be examined through the lens of social justice. The learning exchanges that take place at the conference will provide attendees with an improved ability to enrich the lives of those at risk for negative health outcomes in Chicago and across the state.
