YOUNG ADULT HEALTH ACROSS THE LIFESPAN: POLICY AND PRACTICE

The 2nd annual School of Social Work Student-Focused HEALS Policy and Practice Conference

Friday, April 19, 2019

This conference is planned and organized by University of Illinois School of Social Work Healthcare Education and Leadership Scholars (HEALS) students in collaboration with other social work students, faculty, and guests.

This event will take place from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 19th, 2019 at the iHotel and Conference Center in Urbana, IL. Registration information and the event schedule can be found at: socialwork.illinois.edu/heals/heals-events
