As the home of public health research and practice at Drexel, the Dornsife School of Public Health is hosting a Population Health Symposium to provide a platform for the University community and the community more broadly to engage in discussions about population health.

This year’s inaugural symposium will bring together researchers, health practitioners, students, and the public at large to learn about the intersection of racism and health and discuss how we can collectively propose sustainable solutions towards health equity. The symposium will include two keynote speakers and three sessions on research, interventions, and public engagement. This year the Population Health Symposium is being organized by the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
