International and Domestic Health Equity and Leadership (IDHEAL) UCLA Emergency Medicine

IDHEAL Summer Meeting, 2018
Los Angeles, CA

We had an excellent turnout for the IDHEAL summer meeting. Dr. Tom Lee, founder of Community Partners International, gave a presentation on the history and current work of his organization in Myanmar. After Dr. Lee's presentation, we reviewed recent events and projects of IDHEAL members. Strategic planning for the fall and winter will focus on continuing to build capacity for screening for unmet social needs in ED patients and writing a faculty guide to our Social Emergency Medicine curriculum.
