Less than two weeks until the South and Midwest Regional Institutes on Saturday, September 26 — there is still time to register! You can register up until the night before, but we prefer that you do so as soon as possible to help us better prepare and provide the best Institute experience possible.

Help make sure we get a great crowd by inviting all of your friends who may be interested, via email or our Facebook group!

Here is some key information to help you prepare to for the Institutes:

Midwest Institute (Chicago, IL)

The Midwest Institute will take place in the Armour Academic Center at Rush University. Make sure you’re there by 10:15am to hear the opening presenter, University of Chicago’s Dr. Ken Fox,¬†Senior Staff Physician and Professor of Pediatrics!

South Institute (Nashville, TN)

The South Institute will take place in the West Basic Sciences Building (WBS) at Meharry Medical School. Make sure you’re there by 9:15am to hear the opening presenter, Dr. Joseph Interrante, CEO of Nashville Cares!

I also want to personally introduce the amazing Regional Training Coordinators, who made these Institutes possible and are a great resource to those who will attend:

  • Shaheja Sitafawalla, MPH, Rush University (M1). Shaheja spent this past summer working as co-coordinator of a sanitation education project in rural, western Kenya.
  • Nia Imani Bodrick, MPH, Meharry Medical School (M3). Nia’s interest in health and human rights began when she worked as an intern at Advocates for Youth, focusing on adolescent reproductive and sexual health.

If you have more questions about getting to Chicago or Nashville, or need further area-specific advice, contact me and I will put you in touch with one of these great coordinators.

See you there!
