2014 International Symposium

Dear Colleague:

As Principal Investigator of the 2014 International Symposium on Minority Health and Health Disparities conference grant, I am writing to encourage you to participate in this longstanding, historic, scientific program to be held December 1-3, 2014 in National Harbor, Maryland.

Along with conference co-chairs, Drs Mark Edberg, George Washington University, and Barbara Hayes, Texas Southern University, we encourage you to register and attend the conference, submit abstracts prior to the June 2 deadline, and secure exhibit space and ads

The program is titled “Transdisciplinary Collaborations: Evolving Dimensions of US and Global Health Equity” and is a must attend scientific program for 2014.

The Symposium planning, scientific, abstract and cultural committees look forward to welcoming you to the greater Washington, DC area to share your expertise to improve minority health and to reduce and eliminate health disparities. Also, we encourage you to volunteer as an abstract reviewer for the symposium.

More information about the Symposium is available at http://www.ismhhd.com
