In 2022, our Conference drew over 400 participants from the U.S and internationally. More than one-third of the participants identified as students, residents, or learners.

The Conference offered 17.5 inter-professional continuing education credits, including 3 keynote speakers, 3 plenary panels, site visits, community panels, and more than 80 abstract presentations and 50 posters on areas of social mission.

Sponsors helped us keep registration rates well below costs, especially for student and resident learners. We were also able to offer scholarship funding to 31 Social Mission Scholars.

An important priority for the Social Mission Alliance is to ensure that our conferences make a positive impact on local communities. For the first time, we partnered with Corbin’s Legacy, a community-based organization, to hold a community outreach event where 400 families received oral health screenings, medical screenings, dinner, and groceries to take home.
