Dear Friends and Colleagues:

The US Conference on African Immigrant Health - USCAIH 2010 will take place in Atlanta, GA on April 7th- 11th 2010.

The first of its kind, the USCAIH 2010 will encompass the following elements that are considered critical in addressing health disparities in the African Diaspora: health disparities reduction; policy change; existing national connections, partners, collaborators; existing relationships for governments and institutions; community networking and outreach; cultural needs, beliefs, and practices; grassroots focus; and the impact of war, torture and trauma.

We are delighted to invite you to be part of this ground-breaking United States Conference on African Immigrant Health (USCAIH). This national conference is scheduled for April 7th - 11th 2010, at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel & Conference Center, in Atlanta, GA. The USCAIH 2010 will bring together members of the community, health scientists, public health workers, advocates and providers, as well as community organizers to chart a purposeful course for addressing health prevention, education, care, and treatment among the growing African immigrant communities and other populations in the United States.
