The 2018 Jean Elaine Mills Annual Health Symposium will build synergies between community residents, community organizations and ECU faculty and students, focusing on minority health and community/campus partnerships as a vehicle to reduce health disparities. Participants will be challenged to address the social determinants of obesity and diabetes that is disproportionally affecting the communities of eastern North Carolina. Our guest speaker this year will be Dr. Leandris Liburd, who is the Associate Director for the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Liburd is an expert on the social determinants of health and has been instrumental in identifying intervention strategies that have been shown to reduce racial and ethic health disparities.
