Department of Psychiatry IDEA Conference

July 29, 2022 to June 30, 2023

The Psychiatry IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Anti-Racism) Conference features speakers who present important information on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives that affect individuals in the Psychiatry department and behavioral health settings. In a time of information overload, we strive to provide reliable, current, and comprehensive information. Members of the Department of Psychiatry will benefit from hearing the presentations and engaging in a question and answer session with the speakers. These educational events will be held quarterly from 12:00-3:00 pm at WisPIC (6001 Research Park Blvd).
