When and Where

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Dalla Lana School of Public Health
155 College Street Toronto, ON, M5S 3E3


Students, faculty, health administrators and service providers at all stages of their careers are invited to submit abstracts for presentations, workshops or poster presentations at the 1st annual GeoHealth Network mini-conference to take place in Toronto on April 30th, 2019.

GeoHealth Network particularly welcome abstracts aimed at sharing successes and failures in projects which build capacity for qualitative, quantitative, contextual and/or traditional geographical methods to consider the complexities in place, space, and scale for the surveillance, understanding, or delivery of health, wellness and care, and encourage Indigenous students and researchers to share their research or to lead workshops related to aspects of urban and rural Indigenous health.

Access to a computer lab and table-less rooms are available upon request, and workshops that include hands-on use of open source data and software are encouraged. A keynote speaker and culminating panel discussion will be included in this full-day event.
