2021 Theme: Advocacy for Change: Celebrating Past Successes and Planning for the Future
The Minority Health Conference is a yearly gathering where professionals and students from allied health fields come together to uncover and focus on eliminating the health challenges encountered by marginalized populations. This conference seeks not only to shed light on health inequities that persist in marginalized communities, but to also build a task force of emerging leaders and professionals to address these issues at the local, regional, and national levels.
Advocacy is an integral aspect of social change. The 2021 conference’s theme is Advocacy for Change: Celebrating Past Successes and Planning for the Future, honors how advocacy efforts are instrumental in advancing the health of minorities.
Public health is an active and integral actor for social change. As a field, public health must intentionally shed light on disparities that persist due to structural and social inequalities and provide pathways to promote better health for all. We hope the 2021 conference will create a forum that sets the stage for more effective and engaging advocacy efforts in our communities far and near.
