We are now accepting poster abstracts for Whole Person. Whole Team. Whole Communities. (The deadline to submit a workshop proposal has passed.) It’s a two-day Summit exploring the ways in which laws and policies affect the physical, emotional, and mental health of individuals, hasten health care crises among the most vulnerable, and preserve health inequities that keep whole communities from thriving. This Summit is a chance for advocates, allied health professionals, consumers, lawyers, mental health professionals, nurses, physicians, public health professionals, social workers, and students of all disciplines to learn how multidisciplinary health care teams can harness the power of law and legal advocacy to confront health inequities, and thus improve health care for individual patients, tackle complex systems that influence physical and mental health, and build upstream policy solutions that enable communities to thrive.
Research Poster Abstracts
We want to feature the newest and best quantitative and qualitative research highlighting the role that laws and legal policy play in things such as health equity, the value of an integrated approach to care, the health care workforce or system, and community level policy change. Twenty abstracts will be selected for poster presentations during an accredited poster session on Thursday, September 19 from 3:15 – 4:30 p.m. Posters will be grouped and displayed in three tracks: (1) Whole person, (2) Whole Team, and (3) Whole Communities. Detailed guidance for abstracts is available here.
The poster session is accredited, meaning eligible attendees will receive continuing legal, medical, nursing, or social work education credit for attending, so authors are required to stand with their posters during this hour and hold discussions with participants who are circulating among the poster boards.
