The North American Refugee Health Conference (NARHC) is the largest interdisciplinary conference in the world. Its primary purpose is to promote the health of refugee populations during the continuum of their flight, migration, and resettlement by assembling multidisciplinary experts in research, education, advocacy and clinical practice. This year’s conference will be held from September 9-11, 2021, and will be offered completely online.
In preparation for the conference, abstract submissions are now being accepted. Those working in this space are encouraged to submit abstracts that focus on the following topics for consideration:
Chronic Disease COVID-19
Global Refugee Health
Mental Health & PTSD
Migration and Resettlement
Refugee Educational Development
The deadline for abstract submission is April 19, 2021. Submissions will be considered for workshops, oral or poster presentations.
We look forward to welcoming all refugee health professionals and experts from related disciplines interested in discussing the best health practices, addressing challenges for optimal care, research and advocacy for the refugee patient population both pre and post-migration and self-care for healers.
