MENA, Refugee, and Immigrant Health Equity Symposium
Wayne State University's Center for Health Equity and Community Knowledge in Urban Populations - CHECK-UP - and the Karmanos Cancer Institute's Office of Cancer Health Equity & Community Engagement are pleased to present their 2022 Community Engaged Research Symposium Series.
The MENA, Refugee, and Immigrant Equity Symposium occurred virtually November 1 & 2, 2022. This symposium consisted of brief presentations from researchers and community, followed by breakout rooms for discussion and deciding action items. Each day concluded with agenda setting and next steps that will help move work forward in the space of MENA, Refugee, and Immigrant health equity. This highly engaging symposium served as beginning steps of the MENA, Refugee, and Immigrant Health Equity Research Network. The Planning Committee deliberately created an agenda addressing four overarching topics contributing to MENA, Refugee, and Immigrant health inequities:
- Social Determinants of MENA, Refugee, and Immigrant Health
- Stress, Trauma, Health, and Wellness across the Lifespan
- Access & Equity
- Policy & Research
