Leveraging a Culturally Diverse Health Workforce to Increase Community Resilience

Xavier University of Louisiana College of Pharmacy's Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities, Research and Education will host its 11th Health Disparities Conference April 19–20, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Conference participants will include clinicians (pharmacists, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and allied health professionals), health policy makers, researchers, health educators, public and community health leaders, and students whose work incorporates the use of multidisciplinary partnerships that build collaborations to eliminate health disparities, achieve health equity, and create healthier communities.

Previous conference attendee evaluations indicated that the abstract podium presentations enhanced the effectiveness of the conference and helped to stimulate discussions surrounding community centered, basic, and clinical research; and health policy. Evaluations, most importantly, indicated that presentations initiated discussions on the inclusion of interprofessional and interdisciplinary collaborations between community, academic and other resource partners. Our planning committee will continue to build on this momentum as we develop content for the 2018 Conference.

We look forward to your continued support of programming from XULA-COP CMHDRE!
