Call for Abstracts

The conference organizers are now accepting abstracts. The conference theme will focus on topics that bridge occupation, environment and population health and that present opportunities for collective research and action by the participating universities throughout the Cascadia region. Keynote presentations will explore the impact of wildfires, the ongoing opioid public health crisis, and the persistence of related health disparities and inequities.

For podium presentations, ignite talks and posters, we are accepting abstracts that relate to any occupational, environmental, or population health topics. If you are interested in presenting at the conference, please submit your contact information and a brief abstract (200 words maximum). We welcome presentations and posters from research that is in progress. The deadline for submission is November 15th, 2023.
