Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) is honored to serve as the main sponsor of the 2018 Beyond Flexner Conference. Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and the Beyond Flexner Alliance are serving as co-sponsors.

MSM will welcome medical professionals and educators from across the nation for the conference Monday, April 9, through Wednesday, April 11, 2018. The conference will take place at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in downtown Atlanta.

The annual conference will examine ways to create health equity. Doctors, professors, and students will take a deeper look into social determinants of health, community engagement, and more. It is an opportunity for health care professionals to dive deeper into the health equity movement and learn how to integrate social mission into all aspects of their education and careers.

In 2016, MSM was awarded the Institutional Excellence Award by the Macy Foundation and the Beyond Flexner Alliance. MSM was the first institution to receive this award.

Registration for the event is now open. For more information and to register for the conference, please visit the Beyond Flexner website.
