Welcome to the first annual National Newcomer Navigation Network (N4) Conference held March 1 – 3, 2022. The theme of this year’s conference is The Past is Practice: intersectoral lessons learned from the dual pandemic of COVID-19 and systemic racism. We invite newcomer-serving professionals and organizations to submit abstracts that address the root systemic causes of health and social service inequities for newcomers, including learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic and racial justice movement over the past 2 years.
The abstract submission deadline is Monday, November 8, 2021 at 11:59PM EST.
Formats for submission include:
- Oral presentations: consisting of 45 minutes of speaking time and 15 minutes for Q&A. Sessions should be interactive and engage participants in discussion and/or activities beyond the Q&A.
- Poster sessions: graphic presentations visually-highlighting proven practices, sharing successful ideas, offering problem-solving solutions or outlining an innovative program.
Topics of interest to our members include:
Accepted submissions are not exclusive to this list. Priority will be given to submissions that are relevant to an intersectoral audience and include the voice of lived experience.
Key Take Aways/Learning Objectives:
The N4 Conference Review Committee will use a scoring tool for submissions. Priority will be given to submissions that are relevant to an intersectoral audience, best represent the conference theme, include the voice of lived experience, and will attract and engage attendees. Should your abstract not be selected as an oral presentation, you may be invited to present your work as a poster.</span<
Notification from the Review Committee will be sent by December 3rd.
