The theme for this year’s research symposium is “Fostering Health Equity through Research and Practice”. The topic of Health Equity comprises a growing international initiative to diminish healthcare disparities and promote research focused on solutions.

The event will have keynote speakers with esteemed expertise in health equity. Dr. Marcella Wilson is the author of Diagnosis Poverty: A new approach for understanding and treating an epidemic. In her newest role, President and Founder of Transition to Success™, Dr. Wilson is leading a national social change movement with a standard of care to treat poverty as an environmentally based medical condition. In addition to Dr. Wilson, we will be joined by the American Heart Association, who is proactively leading initiatives addressing the health inequities and disparities that exist in our country.

The symposium will provide a forum for JPS and Tarrant County community researchers to share research insights and ideas via poster and podium presentation sessions. Researchers, including clinicians and students, are encouraged to exchange innovations, ideas, and experiences in clinical practice and research.

The symposium will commence with an awards ceremony honoring those with outstanding research contributions. For more information on JPS Research Day, contact ResearchSymposium@jpshealth.org.
