16th Annual Conference of Emerging and New Research in Geographies of
Health and Impairment(ENRGHI)
10th-11th September 2012
University College London (with Queen Mary, University of London)
ENRGHI is a conference run for and by post graduate and early career researchers, with the support of the Geography of Health Research Group of the RGS/IBG. We are a supportive peer group with a shared interest in geographies of health and our conference offers a positive environment in which to both present and get feedback. Although a geography group, we welcome abstracts from researchers in all disciplines who are involved in research in health or health care within a social, geographical or environmental context. Submissions may be based on Masters dissertations, literature reviews, work-in-progress or completed research projects.
Abstract submissions of 250 WORDS for 10 minute oral presentations should be sent via email by FRIDAY 25th MAY 5pm GMT.
Broad themes for presentation include, but are not limited to, the following:
> Healthcare delivery
> Health inequalities, Environmental justice, Equity
> Rural health
> Health in the city
> Health across the life course
> HIV/AIDS research
> Mental health, disability and stigma
