Final Presentations of 2019 Cohort Everyone is invited ~ Light refreshments will be served

“The varsity Sport for the Mind,”  FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors.  It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.

The 2019 APHC conference will explore social justice education and practice in the health professions across the U.S. and internationally. Social justice is emphasized as a key value in the 2002 Charter on Medical Professionalism, the 2017 Code of Ethics for Social Work, and included within the 2015 Code of Ethics for Nursing. What does our experience with healthcare in the 21st century tell us about successes, failures, and opportunities in embracing social justice as a professional value? What is our path moving forward?
