Healthy Beginnings, Healthy Communities:
The Early Childhood Experience
The 15th annual Rural Health Conference is hosted by the Institute for Rural Health Research and the College of Community Health Sciences. Please join us as we continue our dialogue and work together to find solutions to the health issues that impact our rural and under-served citizens.
The conference is attended by health care professionals, community leaders, researchers, government officials and policymakers interested in making an impact on our communities.
Our focus this year is early childhood health and how we can address it locally. Sessions will be approached from a variety of disciplines including clinical, community, and population.
The conference will be held all day on Tuesday, April 29th at the Bryant Conference Center on the campus of The University of Alabama. A full schedule will be posted soon.
We invite you to share your work through the conference’s poster session.
We are currently accepting proposals from researchers from all academic disciplines for break-out-session presentations.
