DiversityRx 2013 Conference Call for Proposals
DEADLINE EXTENSION: PRESENTATION PROPOSALS ARE DUE THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 2012
The Eighth National Conference on Quality Health Care for Culturally Diverse Populations: Achieving Equity in an Era of Innovation and Health System Transformation will take place March 11-14, 2013 in Oakland, California and has opened a Call for Presentation Proposals.
New partnerships between health care organizations and communities, research into improved ways to deliver care, and changes in health care policy are opening up opportunities to achieve equity and the highest quality health care for culturally diverse populations. In this time of transition, practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and advocates for health equity can focus attention on implementation, participation and improving health outcomes for individuals and communities. The 2013 conference will offer participants the opportunity to hear from experts and front-line leaders about how diverse populations are affected by:
- state and national reform efforts
- changes to the Medicaid program
- innovative technology for information management and outreach
- social determinants of health
- other practice and financing developments.
As always, the conference will continue to feature both established and innovative cultural and linguistic competence and disparity reduction programs and policies from across the country and abroad.
EXTENDED DEADLINE: Presentation proposals are due by THIS FRIDAY, June 8, 2012.
