This grant supports the Institute for the Advancement of Multicultural & Minority Medicine (the Institute) to: (1) report on the results of the inaugural Martin Luther King Jr. Health Equity Summit (the Summit), August 22-23, 2011, and (2) to engage key audiences using Internet-based, social-media platforms to maximize the impact of the Summit on issues of health and equity. Project deliverables include: (1) the Summit report, with all papers and discussion notes, background references, media cited by presenters as resources, and other key resources produced by the Institute, and (2) a copy of the social-media plan and lessons learned from the social-media engagement of key stakeholders (i.e., conference participants, presenters, health professionals, policymakers and sponsors).
