The Health Humanities Consortium promotes health humanities scholarship, education, and practices through interdisciplinary methods and theories that focus on the intersection of the arts and humanities, health, illness, and healthcare.
We are planning on bringing the 2019 HHC Meeting to Chicago. We have made a reservation with the Conference Center at DePaul University in the Loop and are securing hotel rooms at a variety of price points. However, this reservation also requires that we make a downpayment. So we are asking those who would like to see a 2019 meeting, to contribute to helping make this conference possible.
Location:DePaul University Conference Center
Dates: March 28-30, 2019
