Bringing together the brightest minds to cast light upon the issues of our time
From big data to food deserts, disaster preparedness to brain injury recovery, these complicated issues demand collaborative thinking. The UM Flagship Constellation initiative launches a multidisciplinary response to inspire and accelerate meaningful solutions.
The Community Wellbeing Flagship Constellation Mini-Conference will be held January 17, 2018, in Grenada, Mississippi, with the purpose of sharing information on initiatives through a general meeting and three-minute presentations, followed by sub-constellation breakout discussions. The event will be held from 10 am – 3 pm with in person and online participation options. Lunch will be provided for Grenada attendees.
Participation in the Constellation and the Mini-Conference is open to all who are interested, but pre-registration for the event is required. Please register by 5 pm on December 8. If you would like to deliver a three-minute presentation, please include a title and 150 word abstract as part of the registration.
