Each year theconference promotes interdisciplinary collaboration and partnership for solving emerging global health challenges.

The conference fosters exploration of pedagogical approaches to social medicine, didactic presentations and discussions, collaborative activities, policy and program development exercises.  We support the advancementof collective understanding of the interactions between the biology of disease and the social, cultural, economic, political, and historical factors that influence illness presentation and social experience.  We engage in rigorous monitoring and evaluation of program impact upon completion and longitudinally.


SUSTAINABILITY 

Internship Training: Each year, we take on a Conference Planning Intern who helps us with the planning and implementation of the conference. These interns are chosen from our Social Medicine Course alumni, contributing to practical skills training around conference organization for the next generation of Haitian health professionals.

Social Medicine Course Alumni Participation: Each year, a significant number of alumni from the Social Medicine Course attend and help in the day-of implementation of the conference. We are currently working on integrating these students in deeper ways, providing opportunities to learn about running a conference, presenting a poster, or leading a small-group session.
