The Healthology Symposium “where science, practice, and social interests meet” provides a culminating focus for faculty, students, alumni and community partners to celebrate impactful research and scholarship that affect health outcomes. Health care leaders and providers will gather to discuss the importance of addressing the “upstream” social determinants of health in achieving better “downstream” care within the scope of clinical and diagnostic teams. The discussion will dive into the importance of collaborative medical settings in the battle over community health crises, including a keynote address from Michael Laposata, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chairman of the Department of Pathology at The University of Texas Medical Branch. This symposium is a call for public awareness and professional action.
