2017 – UT Houston Conference

NOTE: We are aware of and troubled by recent moves of the new US administration in regards to travel bans. We are also aware that there have been calls for boycotting international conferences in the United States. The Health Humanities Consortium is thinking carefully about this issue.  We have decided to go ahead with the conference as planned and take up this important issue at the business meeting.



The 2017 International Health Humanities Consortium theme was “Diversity, Cultures, and Health Humanities.”

The 2017 meeting took place in Houston, TX, one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan cities in the world,
and home to the largest medical center of its kind.

The conference was held at the Houston Marriott Medical Center, located at 6850 Fannin St.

Thank you all for joining us!
