IPEC Mini-grant application for funding of UNE student project Maine Partners for Health in Africa: Clinical and Public Health Initiatives. The team organized a day long conference in February 2014, "The Maine Africa Connection," to bring together UNE community, Maine organizations, members of the public, and practitioners to discuss best practices, challenges, and begin new collaborations for future health projects. Goals of the conference were to gather experts on interdisciplinary approaches to health care for African refugees and immigrants in Maine, educate health providers, administrators, educators, and community members on best practices for refugee health care, and set a foundation for professional collaboration and leadership.
