IHA Conference Scholarships

5 Scholarships Available for the Institute for Healthcare Advancement Health Literacy Conference

We know. We understand. Flying all the way across the country, taking 3 or 4 days off, paying for the flight and the hotel room, AND the tuition for the conference…that can be too much for many of us.

We’re here to help a little bit.

IHA is pleased to announce that, through the generosity of several of our speakers who redirected some or all of their honoraria to this effort, and a contribution from IHA as well, we have 5 scholarships available to the IHA Health Literacy Conference for those who could really use the help.

How to apply
Send an email to [email protected] no later than Wednesday, April 16 at 5 pm PDT. Include the following information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email
  • Phone
  • Why you feel you are a good choice for this scholarship
  • One way you plan on applying what you learn at this conference

We’ll review and select 5 people to receive this scholarship. Remember, this is for conference tuition only, and does not provide any financial support for travel or lodging.

Arkansas Minority Health Summit

Join public health leaders from around the country for a full day of activities designed to provide learning opportunities about new and emerging trends focused on health equity for minority communities in Arkansas.

Be in attendance as we release the results of a new UAMS study, funded by the Arkansas Minority Health Commission, that suggests that eliminating health disparities for Arkansas minorities would have resulted in a reduction of direct medical care expenditures of $518.60 million in 2010. In this study, AMHC and UAMS sought to estimate the economic impact of racial and ethnic disparities in Arkansas.
