Call for Conference Session Proposals:

The Baylor COE is soliciting conference session proposals for plenary and breakout sessions connected with the annual theme and overall learning objectives for the conference. The theme for this year’s summit is Advancing Health Equity through Innovation and Technology. Proposals should be thought-provoking, and accessible to a broad technical and lay audience.

Call for Research Abstracts:

Each year, we host a networking and poster session for presentation of original research dedicated to workforce diversity and health equity issues. Posters will be displayed throughout the conference, with dedicated time for attendees to view the posters. There will also be a poster competition. Abstracts should highlight innovative research that will contribute to the promotion and improvement of minority health and the elimination of health disparities and inequities. All abstracts will be reviewed based on their merit by a peer-reviewed process for acceptance. Click here for more information and access the submission form.

We welcome submissions from all disciplines and levels including faculty, staff and trainees at academic institutions, private-practice healthcare providers, government agencies, community organizations, health care organizations, and research institutions. The deadline to submit a conference session proposal and/or abstract is March 15, 2020.
