This year’s theme, “Reclaiming the Narrative,” is based in the recognition that the world is organized by the stories we tell. These stories become the catalyst for transformative research led by health science professionals across the country. Through research encompassing the narratives of marginalized communities, featured presentations can challenge us to consider the current social and political climate in the United States. In engaging with this work, communities and health science professionals will be empowered to promote mental, physical, and social well-being for all, regardless of identity or circumstance.
