2011 NHSN Conference: August 25 - August 27, Miami, FL

The eleventh annual conference for the National Hispanic Sciences Network has been scheduled for August 25- August 27, 2011 in Miami, FL.

The theme of this year’s conference is: Pathways toward Health Equities in Hispanic Population. Panels are being formed to discuss the “Etiologies of Health Disparities”, “Existing Interventions”, as well as “Health Reforms and Policies”. We are looking forward to another stimulating conference with many opportunities for mentoring and collaboration discussions. This is an excellent platform for young investigators to promote their research focus as well as a chance to hear the latest from those who manage the policy and finances.
