Puentes: Advancing Population Health Research
02/20/2018 - 02/21/2018
Population health is an approach to health and wellbeing that focuses on understanding and overcoming the health challenges facing groups of people. These can be patients in a health system or people living in a geographic area. Contrary to traditional medicine that focuses on diagnosing and treating illnesses, population health promotes health and attempts to prevent chronic diseases before they start and reduce their effects once they occur. Population health aims to enhance the effectiveness and value of health care but also identify and overcome community-based social, behavioral, economic, and structural barriers to health.
Leading population health investigators from The University of Texas at Austin and Mexico will meet on February 20-21, 2018, at the Dell Medical School in Austin, Texas to identify areas of common interest and develop partnerships to design and conduct transnational studies aiming to help people in Texas and Mexico get and stay healthy. This symposium will establish collaborations among UT-Austin researchers and leading researchers from Mexico to promote health and prevent and manage chronic diseases.

2018 Council on Contemporary Families Conference
03/02/2018 - 03/02/2018
Technology, medical advances, health policies, and social change have shaped the new frontier of reproductive health care. Those who receive and provide services face new possibilities, as well as uncharted risks. In contemporary US society, the concepts and lived realities of sex, gender, sexuality, parenthood, and family reflect increasingly more complex and inclusive definitions.
With technological developments, medical interventions and growing inequality popularizing ideas like “fertility tourism” and “designer babies,” the need for research-based dialogue is paramount. At this highly interactive conference, leading scholars and practitioners will come together to address national issues as well as US reproductive health topics in a global context. With attention to access and affordability, as well as ethics and legality, this one-day conference will bring together a diverse group of experts — from fields such as medicine, law, psychology, sociology, and public policy — to discuss the rapidly growing field of reproductive science and health care.
