Sharing: The Key of Networking. Proceedings of the Annual Conference of the National Society of Allied Health (Houston, Texas, March 30-31, 1984).
Douglas, Harry E., III
The topic covered at the 1984 annual meeting of the National Society of Allied Health (NSAH) was networking among schools of allied health and health related professionals concerned with increasing the numbers of minorities (Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans) in the allied health and health related fields. This booklet is a compilation of the proceedings. The stated objectives of the meeting were to (1) identify benefits of sharing resources for the development and maintenance of allied health programs; (2) provide information and model programs for developing allied health programs; (3) identify and bring together key minority people in organizations involved in the field; (4) provide strategies for establishing a network between educational institutions in the field; and (5) promote minority participation in seeking leadership positions in the field. These themes were developed in the speeches given by a variety of professionals in the field from government and educational institutions. One paper was also presented which described a model health career counseling program for urban high school students. The proceedings conclude with a short note about the contributors and an address listing of participants. (CG)
