The COVID-19 pandemic and systematic racism continue to dramatically impact our society. The theme of the 2022 NCEAS Annual Conference focuses on fostering wellness at this moment in history- for patients, communities, students, health professionals, and educators. Below are just a few of the topics we plan to discuss and highlight during the 2022 conference:

  • Social and economic needs
  • Loss and coping through COVID-19
  • Social isolation
  • Mental health
  • Trauma
  • Substance use
  • Team based care

Our goal is to learn from educators, students and other leaders about the strategies and best practices they are using to improve and foster wellness throughout the pandemic. We will also be continuing our dialogue during the conference to learn from updates/initiatives from last year’s conference theme – Education in Action: Teaching Anti-Racism to Today’s Learners.

Conference Aims

  • To discuss the current landscape of SDOH training in health professions education at all levels
