Save the date for our 2021 Annual Conference, Mission: Health Equity! At present, the conference will be held in-person at the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, D.C., from August 1-4, 2021. ACU is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding public health measures to ensure that the Conference is safely aligned with the highest public health standards – including the possibility of transitioning the event to a virtual setting or a hybrid meeting in which keynote addresses, general sessions, and some workshops are available via streaming. Stay tuned for updates.
The ACU Annual Conference brings together hundreds of healthcare clinicians, as well as public health and industry leaders from across the country, all with an interest in expanding access to care and improving healthcare delivery for underserved populations. The meeting is a special opportunity for clinicians, administrators, researchers, students, and advocates to network, learn, and share strategies to support our collective work.
This year’s conference theme, Mission: Health Equity, highlights the need to work harder at eliminating health disparities by calling out and adequately addressing individual and systemic practices that contribute to poor health among BIPOC and other marginalized groups.
The conference will include 24 educational sessions, networking opportunities, a pre-conference session, and more. Continuing Education credits will be available for workshop sessions. The full conference agenda, including workshop sessions, will be published in April 2021.
