Welcome to IMGS2024!

The International Medical Geography Symposium (IMGS) is a biannual meeting of health and medical geographers from around the world. Please join us at Georgia State University in downtown Atlanta, USA from July 14 to July 19, 2024.

As we celebrate 20 years of pioneering research, the International Medical Geography Symposium aims to both honor past contributions and forge the agenda for future interdisciplinary endeavors. This year's conference serves as a nexus for dialogues on various topics, inlcuding spatial health inequalities, geospatial data analytics, and public health policy. Join us in shaping the future of medical geography through inclusive, interdisciplinary dialogue and exploration.

The theme for the conference is Health and Medical Geographers in a Changing World: Looking Back and Moving Forward.
