SAHARA Virtual Research Symposium

November 15


SAHARA, the South Asian Health And Research Group, is hosting our first annual virtual research symposium, featuring student and faculty led research pertaining to South Asians in the United States. SAHARA was founded last year under the direction of Dr. Niyati Parekh, and has grown to include over 60 members from around the country. The group fosters peer to peer mentorship and investigates topics such as nutrition, social determinants of health, environmental determinants, and mental health. South Asians disproportionately are affected by certain health outcomes including hypertension and diabetes. Groups will present their research and be available for Q and A's after each presentation!
