Hi all, 

I'm excited to let you know that we are currently accepting submissions for abstracts for poster presentations, breakout sessions, and applications for international scholarships for the upcoming SMC conference, Sharing Strategies for Health Equity: Social Medicine in Action. As a reminder, this event is taking place on April 28, 2018 at the Red Rock Event Center in Churchrock, New Mexico.

Abstracts for Breakout Sessions
We are accepting abstracts for breakout sessions that connect with one or more of the conference objectives. Breakout sessions may be formatted as a presentation, panel, or interactive session. Learn more and submit a proposal for a session here.

The deadline for submissions is February 12, 2018. Please direct any questions to Michelle Morse at

Abstracts for Poster Presentation
We are seeking abstracts that describe innovative projects related to social medicine (including programs and curricula), which may be written and presented in English, French or Spanish. Detailed submission guidelines may be found here.

The deadline for submissions is February 12, 2018. For those applying for international travel scholarships, applicants who have submitted an abstract for poster presentation will be given priority. Please direct all questions about abstracts to

Applications for International Travel Scholarships
We believe that the voices and experiences of international colleagues are critical to include in this dialogue, and recognize that the financial burden of travel to the US may be prohibitive. We are therefore dedicated to providing several international travel scholarships for attendees who are committed to the Social Medicine Consortium. Learn more and apply here.

The deadline for applications is February 12, 2018. Please direct any questions to Casey Fox

Please share widely, and as always, feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. 

  Happy holidays!
