Session proposals should address achieving greater levels of health equity while addressing the social determinants of health, and should demonstrate improving outcomes for groups most affected by health disparities. 
Additionally, session proposals that include the utilization of cross-sector collaboration, evidence-based community and clinical practice, innovative policy work addressing longstanding inequities, collaborations and alliances to plan, implement and evaluate their work are encouraged.
