Implementing Interprofessional Collaborations that Achieve Health Equity and Eliminate Health Disparities

Scientific Agenda

The Seventh Health Disparities Conference features lectures by individuals who are making significant contributions to improving healthcare access and to empowering vulnerable populations and marginalized communities.
