2020 Health Equity Week Conference

Health Equity Week 2020: Postponed

As of Tuesday, March 10th, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pennsylvania Health System have recommended against holding gatherings of over 100 people or more. In following with that guidance and in the interest of promoting good public health practices, we regret to announce we are indefinitely postponing Health Equity Week 2020 events. We are working to find alternate dates to reschedule the weeks' events and will communicate to all that have registered and the Penn Medicine community at large when that is finalized.

April 6-10, 2020
