Course Registration

Thank you for your interest in this program.  At this time the event is sold out.

This event will take place at the Kansas Leadership Center, 325 E Douglas Ave, Wichita, KS 67202.

We have convened leaders from around the country and within the state of Kansas to address topics on the current state of health disparities and innovative approaches to reduce health inequities in urban and rural populations. This one day symposium will serve as a foundation for future statewide efforts to reduce health inequities among Kansas and improve the overall health of our residents.  Following this symposium and other planning efforts, the goal will be to develop a Center that has ongoing efforts towards improving the health of our state residents.  

At the completion of this conference, participants should be able to:
  1. Highlight innovative research and health promotion efforts, conducted within the past five years, that have reduced health disparities in communities within Kansas and around the country
  2. Examine models of community partnerships that reduce health disparities
  3. Interpret and apply models of interdisciplinary and inter-professional collaborations that promote health equity and reduce health disparities

Registration for this event is complimentary. Please register in advance. Registration will include course materials, lunch, refreshments and continuing education credit.
