About this Event

Students, faculty, health administrators and service providers at all stages of their careers are invited to submit abstracts for presentations and workshops for the GeoHealth Network Conference, in Toronto on April 30th, 2019. We 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. We encourage Indigenous students and researchers to share their research or to lead workshops related to aspects of urban and rural Indigenous health.

For presentations, please indicate research question, methods, results, interpretation, and relevance.

For workshops please indicate learning objectives, exercise, software, and required prerequisite experience. Qualitative and experiential workshops are encouraged. If accepted, we require your complete workshop materials by April 8th. If your workshop involves data, please ensure all products are accessible to anyone, regardless of affiliation. Access to a computer lab and table-less rooms are available upon request.

Submit your abstract by March 22nd 2019! Click Here!

We ask that each attendee submit only one abstract for either a presentation or workshop. There are no limits on being a co-author.

All conference activities will take place at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health

We are excited to announce opening keynote address by Dr. Jason Gilliland (UWestern) and closing keynote address by Dr. Sara Metcalf (SUNY-Buffalo).

Two prizes of $250 sponsored by Esri Canada for best student project using Esri software!

One prize of $250 for the GeoHealth Network Student Award for best example of building capacity for health geography!

If you have questions or require accessibility measures, please get in touch with us and we will make every accommodation possible.

We are grateful for the following support: University of Toronto Department of Geography and Planning, University of Toronto School of Cities, University of Toronto Graduate Students Union, Esri Canada, and Professor Michael Widener.

Acknowledgment of Traditional Land

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca and, most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. As settlers in Turtle Island, we directly benefit from the colonization and genocide of the indigenous people of this land. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to exist on this land and we must constantly engage in acts of decolonization.
