As part of a Provost Initiative at The University of Alabama, we are seeking both ABD and early career panelists who can participate in a symposium highlighting research and new perspectives for understanding rural health issues and concerns among diverse populations.

Participants will meet with faculty and students in their disciplinary departments in the morning before participating in afternoon panel discussions on March 29th. Selected participants may also opt to stay and participate in a full-day event sponsored by the Rural Health Institute on the following day.

As the university plans to hire 400 new faculty over five years, including individuals whose research addresses rural health, this is an unique opportunity to present, network, and engage in conversation. Meals, transportation, and lodging expenses will be provided.

Dates: March 28-30, 2017
Location: The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL

To apply: Please send a 200-word abstract and 2-page curriculum vitae and/or resume to Dr. Hilary Green, hngreen1@ua.edu no later than March 1, 2017.
