Annual UCSF Health Equity and Anti-Racism Research Symposium

News: We are delighted to announce the rebrand of the Health Disparities Research Symposium as the UCSF Health Equity and Anti-Racism Research (HEAR) symposium:

  • The rebrand comes as we align our work and events more closely with the UCSF Anti-Racism Initiative; it also builds on the symposium's tradition of highlighting health equity research and health disparities impacting marginalized communities.  
  • This will be the 15th symposium and the first year under the new name.
  • HEAR (as did HDRS) showcases research on health disparities conducted by faculty and trainees at UCSF and other Bay Area healthcare and research institutions. Our purpose is to inspire future collaborations and research direction by showcasing the breadth and depth of disparities research. The goal of the symposium is to build community among disparities researchers across disciplines and across units, schools and campus sites.
  • Please note that the rebrand does not affect abstracts submitted for this year's symposium or any eligibility requirements.  

The symposium will be held virtually on October 13 & 14, from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. on both days. To register for the symposium, please follow the steps below.
