Racial and ethnic minorities and others who have historically been social excluded continue to suffer a heavier burden of illness, disability, and early death due to health disparities. The current financial crisis makes this year’s conference even more imperative, as financial hardships affect minorities disproportionately.
Producing a conference of this magnitude requires substantial financial resources, in this case approximately $60,000 plus the time and effort of a large number of volunteers. Support through financial contributions enables us to assemble some of the leading minds on this timely topic, host a national forum via an interactive satellite and Internet broadcast, and facilitate discussion among current and future working professionals.
We are aware that individuals, organizations, and institutions of all kinds are affected by the economic downturn. We welcome donations of all sizes and appreciate all contributions. Please see the sponsorship categories for additional information.
