Speakers and panelists will address a wide range of topics, including substance use disorder, maternal and child health, health equity, immigrant and refugee health, behavioral health, health in conflict and crisis, environmental health, sexual and reproductive health, non-communicable diseases, and more. 
"The Arab Health Summit is a unique opportunity to bring together researchers, academic, health and public health leaders from around the globe to address local and global health issues of Arabs during conflict and times of crisis,” said Mona Makki, Director of the ACCESS Community Health and Research Center and Arab Health Summit Chair.
