Description

Reimagining Health in Cities

September 5 - 6, 2019

Dornsife School of Public Health

Today’s cities face many challenges, including climate change, rising inequality, and health disparities. Yet urban environments offer optimum opportunities for the development of innovative programs and policies that can improve population health. The biennial Drexel Urban Health Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to spark conversations and new ideas about how to turn evidence into action, share creative methods and solutions, and stimulate debate among participants from diverse perspectives and fields.


Poster Session and Reception

A poster session and reception will take place on September 5, 2019. The poster session will cover a broad range of research topics related to urban health and provide an informal setting to discuss the themes of the symposium.

Poster abstracts will be accepted through May 15, 2019, and decisions will be communicated before June 5th. Abstracts may be submitted prior to registration and payment. However, upon acceptance, registration and payment will be required for conference attendance and for the poster to be included in symposium materials. Poster presenters must commit to being present during the poster reception on September 5th.
