The People’s Scientific Conference to Promote Health and Eliminate Health Disparities (The People’s Scientific Conference) will occur on Friday, June 14, 2013 and Saturday, June 15, 2013 at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. The conference is sponsored by the UF Health Disparities Research and Intervention Program in partnership with the UF Prostate Disease Center and the NIH National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD).
This first-of-its-kind conference will launch a Health Disparities Research Fellow Mentoring Program that aims to inspire and train the next generation of researchers (e.g., post-docs, assistant professors) and community health workers to conduct research that has implications for promoting health and eliminating health disparities in racial/ethnic minority and underserved communities. All mentees selected to participate in the Mentoring Program will receive funding for transportation and lodging to attend the conference, and a registration fee waiver.
