USC HEALTH COLLABORATIVE
Provost’s Retreat on Health

Cross-cutting Themes for Concurrent Sessions

The four concurrent session themes are intended to broadly organize key information, research and educational interests. The themes—and sub-topics--reflect the diversity of health activities among the university’s schools and faculty, and there is considerable connection and interplay among them. Thus, they are neither strict (nor exhaustive) categories; nor are they mutually exclusive. Rather, these topics are intended to facilitate communication and collaboration of like-minded people by bringing them together within areas of shared interest.

Please participate in the concurrent session that best
reflects your educational and research interests.
