Mississippi Health Disparities 2022 (MHD2022) will no longer be held on September 8-9, 2022, at the Mississippi Coast Convention Center in Biloxi, Mississippi. MHD2022 is joining forces with the Mississippi IDeA Conference and Mississippi EPSCoR, together making Mississippi IDeA/EPSCoR Conference 2022, featuring MHD2022. MHD2022 will now make its return on Thursday, July 28, 2022, at the Lake Terrace Convention Center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The biomedical research and health disparities portions of the conference will be kept separate, running on individual tracks simultaneously throughout the day. The information contained on this website only applies to the health disparities portion of the overall meeting. Any information relevant to both portions can be found on the official Mississippi INBRE website here. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. However, we are excited to see the potential collaborations that may result from this unique conference organization. Thank you for your continued support of MHD2022. 

Why attend #MHD2022?

Mississippi Health Disparities (MHD) is an annual health disparities symposium held in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, at the Lake Terrace Convention Center. Hosted by the Mississippi IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence, MHD was founded in 2021. Our mission is to eliminate health disparities in Mississippi and create healthier, more equitable communities. MHD is the premiere symposium for health professionals in Mississippi to meet and share knowledge on a variety of topics concerning health disparities.

Our next annual meeting will be held on Thursday, July 28, 2022. If you’re dedicated to creating a healthier Mississippi, whether you’re an MD, PharmD, RN or other health professional, register for MHD2022 today and join our growing movement.

“We know this pandemic has given us reason and highlighted all the issues that we have with health disparities here in Mississippi.”
