Mission: Health Equity

The ACU 2021 Annual Conference, Mission: Health Equity will take place at the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, D.C., from October 31-November 2, 2021.

Virtual and In Person Options Available

This year’s conference will be a hybrid event occurring both in-person and virtually. Virtual attendees will be able to network and access content through our Attendee Hub, including livestreaming of keynote speakers, general sessions, and a featured workshop from each workshop block, a total of six featured workshops.

This year’s conference theme, Mission: Health Equity, highlights the need to work collectively to eliminate health disparities by calling out and adequately addressing systemic practices that contribute to poor health among Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, LGBTQIA, and other minority and intersectional groups.

The in-person conference will include 24 educational workshops, ACU’s 25th Anniversary Reception and Award Ceremony, and more. Continuing Medical Education credits will be available for workshop sessions. The full conference agenda, including workshop sessions, will be published in August.
