Event description

Description

Too many people in our community are dying prematurely due to violence. To address this public health issue, the African American Health Coalition with the Latino Health Coalition is holding the 1st annual “Speak Life!” conference focusing on violence and its impact on health.

At the conference, we will evaluate violence through the lens of race and explore the implications for the health of people of color. Specifically, we will look at intimate partner violence, youth violence and violence related to mental health and substance use. Following dynamic speakers and panel discussions, there will be time for participants to interact. The goal of the program is to build awareness of the issues and provide opportunity for discussion. We will seek to understand the health inequities that exist and the role we can all play in improving the well-being of our community.

Although this is the first Speak Life! Conference, the event builds on the five-year success of the Faith and Medicine – Working Together to Eliminate Health Disparities conferences.

Registration will take place from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and the conference will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event includes a light breakfast and lunch.

Seating is limited, so register today! Advance registration will take place through April 26. After that, tickets will be available for $30 cash or check at the door. Discounted parking is available for $5 at the event.

If you would like to register and pay by check, please mail a check for $20 by April 24 to: Common Ground Health, 1150 University Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607. Please include a note with registrant name(s), email or phone number, and write that the check is for registration for the Speak Life! conference.
