Converging Sciences Summit
Start Date: 4/27/2015 All Day
End Date: 4/27/2015

Event Description:
This year’s Summit—a one-day event to help create and strengthen long-lasting university-community partnerships—is on Community Engagement and Population Health. Faculty and students from many disciplines and communities will gather to bridge the gaps in health services and resource disparities that have persisted in underserved marginalized and minority communities.

Representatives from more than 30 different professions, including social scientists, clinical health scientists, humanities scholars, and technologists, will gather to encourage growth of community-engaged research, mentor emerging leaders and provide opportunities for continuing dialogue, professional growth and networking.

The Converging Sciences Summit is chaired by Pamela Block, Associate Dean for Research at the School of Health Technology and Management, and Director of the Disabilities Studies Concentration for the PhD program in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. Co-chairs of the event are Lisa A. Benz Scott, Director of the Program in Public Health, and Maria Milazzo, Clinical Assistant Professor of Nursing.

The day begins with registration and breakfast from 8 am to 9 am, followed by a morning symposium on the Stony Brook World Trade Center Health Program, a collaboration involving Stony Brook Medicine, labor unions, and other community groups on Long Island. Two more panels will take place concurrently after lunch: The School of Health Technology and Management’s Center for Community Engagement and Leadership Development will host “Creating a Health Career Pipeline for Students in Long Island’s High-Needs Schools” and in the other panel, “From AIDS to Ebola: Lessons Learned and Unlearned,” speakers will highlight historical and current examples of community engagement related to HIV/AIDS on Long Island and its relevance to HIV/AIDS and Ebola across the globe. The event also includes two breakout sessions with six concurrent panels on many different topics and a poster session.

Registration is now open. Online registration closes on April 17. For a complete program schedule, including all of the breakout plenary sessions, please visit the website.
