Annual Events

Health Symposium

The IACH hosts a Fall Health Symposium each year to serve as a forum for community health professionals, clinical providers, and academic investigators to learn, network, and collaborate to establish new partnerships. The focus and topics will vary year to year but through this event, we hope to further Furman University’s longstanding tradition of convening national and local partners to address critical issues in our community.

Our Keynote address, Dr. J. Lloyd Michener will be sharing insights from his book The Practical Playbook: Public Health and Primary Care Together. This will be followed by a local panel of experts who are actively leveraging community, clinical and academic partnerships in our community as a vehicle for change.
