2010 International Network for Justice Health Conference
This conference builds on the success of our May 2009 inaugural meeting of the International Network for Justice Health. At that first “blue sky” meeting, we commenced discussions about developing a collaboratory to advance the concept of justice health. We are very excited to announce that Catherine Gallagher (PI) and Faye Taxman (coPI) have secured funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) for a three-year conference series to develop the Network and related products.
The 2010 International Network for Justice Health Conference was held June 27-28, 2010 at the beautiful Westin Kierland Resort & Space in Scottsdale, Arizona where we continued discussions and advanced the collective and individual strides in our joint goals. The conference included two days of intense sessions and research sharing. Documents from the conference and links to all presentations, can be found below.
