Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Hospital Educator and Academic Liaison (HEAL) Association’s annual national conference will be offered as a Virtual Conference to address the educational needs of pediatric patients. Content will include the presentations originally planned for the in-person conference in Dallas.  Additionally, we are soliciting presentations that reflect the relevant issues in our ever-changing world.  HEAL invites the submission of presentation proposals addressing the following topics.

  • COVID-19
  • Diversity and Inclusion

Specifically, we are interested in your expertise and experience as these topics impact our work and our students/patients.  This can also include programming, self-care/professional support, teaching/classroom strategies, and long-term implications for students/patients with medical and mental health conditions.
