UMaine Institute of Medicine hosts webinar about partnerships for health equity Down East

The University of Maine Institute of Medicine will host a webinar, “Building Community — University Partnerships for Health Equity in Downeast Maine,” from noon–1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16. 

The talk explores the lessons learned and emerging findings from the Downeast Health Research Collaborative (DHRC), a informal network of students, faculty and community organizations based at the University of Maine at Machias that is working to address rural health inequities through community-engaged research, systems-level interventions and workforce development.

Webinar speakers include Tora Johnson, director of the Geographic Information Systems Service Center at UMaine Machias; Katherine Weatherford Darling, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Maine at Augusta; and Oliver Gray Jones, a UMaine Ph.D. student.

The event is part of the institute’s fall 2022 seminar series. Registration for the webinar is required, and can be done online
