International and Domestic Health Equity and Leadership (IDHEAL) UCLA Emergency Medicine
All Los Angeles Conference Social Emergency Medicine
Torrance, CA - 5/9/19
Harbor-UCLA hosted the most recent all-LA conference on May 9th, 2019, attended by residents and faculty from Harbor, LAC-USC, Olive View, UCLA, and Kern.
The conference theme was social emergency medicine with a focus on available resources, both within the county system and beyond. A number of the IDHEAL faculty served as speakers and topics covered included immigration and access to care, trafficking, policing and incarceration, medical debt and transgender health.
The feedback afterwards was very positive, and the session generated great conversions which will hopefully continue!
