On November 16th, 2019, Agnes Scott College will host the sixth annual Atlanta Undergraduate Conference on Health and Society!

All undergraduate students passionate about the connections between individual health and the health of societies are welcome to join us in this opportunity to share ideas from research, internships, and study abroad experiences focused on the health of populations.

Students of public health, medical anthropology, natural sciences, and related disciplines welcome! The conference provides undergraduate students a professional development opportunity to interact with peers interested in public health issues and to present their work.

Our 2019 keynote speaker Leandris Liburd, PhD, MPH, MA, is associate director for minority health and health equity for CDC.  Dr. Liburd's work focuses on building capacity across CDC and in public health agencies to address the social determinants of health and promoting intervention strategies that reduce racial and ethnic health disparities   

Students can participate through:

  • A 12-minute oral presentation
  • A poster presentation (recommended maximum size 3'x4') 
  • Just attending!
Classroom projects and library, experiential, or lab research are welcome.  Abstracts should be no more than 200 words (and are required for oral or poster presentations).  The deadline for abstract submission is October 18th, 2019. Students will be notified of their acceptance status by November 1st. The registration fee is $25 (includes coffee break and lunch).
