Dr. Jenkins will serve as the the keynote speaker.

The Office of Health Equity’s inaugural conference and think tank, will feature a dynamic roster of multi-sector speakers, presenters and panelists focused on tackling issues in health disparities and inequities in Virginia. On day two of the conference, attendees will also participate in Virginia’s first ever statewide health equity think tank—to collectively brainstorm practical, community-rooted solutions to health inequities.

In addition, we are excited to highlight the health equity work of graduate and professional degree students in our evening poster presentation session and reception. We look forward to this unique opportunity for students to share their research with conference attendees!

Join us for this power-packed two day experience that you won’t want to miss!
