HELI 2020 registration is paused

Update – April 7, 2020: HELI 2020 has been postponed. Full details here.

Update – April 2, 2020: Due to an increase in respiratory illness and the rise of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), UW-Madison ICEP and HELI are following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), AAMC, State and local Public Health, UW Health, and UW-Madison guidelines regarding our in-person accredited activities.

At this time, we have made the difficult decision to pause registration and postpone HELI 2020. We do this out of an abundance of caution for our learners and staff. We will share additional information on this page as it becomes available. If you have already registered for our 2020 event, a member of the ICEP staff will contact you. We look forward to gathering together as soon as it’s safe to do so.


EDIT – March 13, 2020: Thank you for your patience as planning for HELI 2020 continues amidst the national concerns related to COVID-19. The University of Wisconsin-Madison has modified spring semester instruction and cancelled all campus events of more than 50 people through at least April 10.

We do not yet know whether we will need to cancel our late June 2020 HELI event. We will learn more in the coming weeks and will move forward as best we can in the interim.


The 2020 Health Equity Leadership Institute (HELI) will take place on Thursday, June 25 and Friday, June 26, 2020 in Madison, WI.

2020 is the 10 year program anniversary, and instead of hosting our usual weeklong Institute, we are hosting a two-day conference celebrating 10 years of the evolution of health equity research and its many diverse leaders.

HELI 2020 includes:

  • Keynote presentations from leaders in the field of health equity research, including Eliseo J. Pérez-Stable, MD, Director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) and Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola, MD, PhD, Director of the Center for Reducing Health Disparities (CRHD) at University of California, Davis.
  • A return to Madison by CCHE Founding Director Alexandra Adams, MD, PhD, Director of the Center for American Indian and Rural Health Equity (CAIRHE) at Montana State University
  • Continuing Education (CE) credits available for the first time ever!
  • Panel discussions with HELI alumni from across the 2010-2019 cohorts
