Debates and Directions in Health Disparities
The 3rd Annual Health Disparities Conference will bring together highly regarded experts from various fields to focus on solutions for eliminating health disparities. Keynote speaker Freeman A. Hrabowski III, president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, will discuss minority participation in science and math education. Special guest speakers include Dr. Francis Butterfoss, Dr. Jay Kaufman, Megan Thomas, Anne Dunkleberg, Dr. Robert Mayberry and Dr. Alyce Adams.
Every year, the Health Disparities conference brings together health professionals to share solutions to the dilemma of health disparities in underrepresented populations and fosters discussions on how to improve the nation’s health. The conference is funded by a grant for Excellence in Partnerships for Community Outreach and Research on Disparities in Health and Training (EXPORT) and envisions an America in which all populations can live long, healthy and productive lives. The EXPORT Center is funded by the NIH/National Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities.
And the walls came tumbling down
Until yesterday, progress on the former Osteopathic Medical Center of Texas demolition has been less visible to those on the Montgomery Street side of the building. On Thursday, the tall tower in the central area of the old hospital tumbled down into a jumble of metal, staircases and roofing material. And much of the building on the Haskell Street side is gone. Demolition is on schedule and should be completed by the end of June, when construction of the new Public Health Education building will begin.
