HealthE: Health Equity Symposium

Join us for Young Invincibles’ third annual health education symposium, “HealthE,” on Thursday, November 18th as advocates across the states tackle equity within health care.

Our young adult-led virtual conference will include guest speakers, exciting games, and interactive webinar sessions on critical topics, like reproductive health care, rural health, and young people & the impact of COVID-19.  HealthE is free for attendees and includes a $20  💸 gift card and $45 Snack Box for all who join a webinar and complete our post event survey!

This year’s HealthE symposium will allow attendees to choose the session they feel most connected to! Each breakout room is designed to help Young Advocates:

  • Gather insights and reflections from young people about what health care needs they’re most excited about
  • Uplift and educate both in the immediate and over the long term as we emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic
  • Begin strategizing how to advance demands for healthcare access in Texas
