|Save April 23 for researchers online registration|
The School of Medicine and Health Sciences North Dakota Women’s Health CORE Center of Excellence Research Committee is planning a North Dakota Women’s Health Research Conference Monday, April 23, for researchers throughout the state whose research relates to women’s health concerns. This will be an exciting opportunity to meet, discuss work, and explore ways to coordinate and to collaborate in research. The plan is to start the development of a statewide Women’s Health research agenda at this conference. We would like to invite researchers to bring a poster that represents recent work, perhaps a poster presented at a recent conference. A display area will be available and time during the day will be allotted to familiarize researchers with one another’s work through dialogue and visuals.
Our conference keynote speaker will be Stephen Wonderlich of Fargo, an international leader in research on eating disorders. JoAnne Hoesel, director of the North Dakota Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, will greet all conference participants on behalf of the state.
The schedule follows:
* 8 to 9 a.m. -- Registration; poster set-up; continental breakfast (provided)
* 9 to 9:25 a.m. -- Welcome
* 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. -- Plenary presentation by Dr. Wonderlich
* 10:15 to 11 a.m. -- Poster display; mid-morning snack (provided)
* 11 to 11:45 a.m. -- Small groups
* 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. -- Remarks; lunch (provided)
* 12:30 to 2 p.m. -- Discussion – prepared group questions
* 2 to 3 p.m. -- Reporting; agenda; adjournment
Plenary meeting will conclude with a research agenda for future research on women’s health in North Dakota. Online registration may be accessed at: http://www.und.nodak.edu/dept/womenshealth/researchconference.html
An added incentive is the location for the conference. Our research day will be held at the new UND Wellness Center, a beautiful addition to the UND campus. Parking is easily accessible and meals, meetings, talks, and poster discussions will all be held in the same building. Information about the Wellness Center may be accessed at: http://www.wellness.und.edu/ We look forward to this exciting opportunity to engage women’s health researchers throughout North Dakota.
We invite you to visit the Women’s Health CORE web site: http://www.und.nodak.edu/dept/womenshealth/. Travel reimbursement will be available for researchers. We hope to see you April 23!
