Each year, the Institute for Health and Social Policy hosts a series of events. These include conferences and workshops with national and global participation, as well as a seminar series for the local community of students, faculty, staff, and others. These events explore what is known about how social and environmental conditions impact on health and how this knowledge can be translated into policies and programs that make a difference. If you are interested in being added to our mailing list for seminar series, please send us an admincoord.ihsp [at] (email).

Information about the seminar series can be found here.
