The Sixth Annual International Conference on Urban Health, October 31–November 2, 2006

This special section for the Journal of Urban Health presents the submitted abstracts that were awarded oral or poster presentation at the Sixth International Conference on Urban Health in Baltimore, MD. All abstracts were reviewed by the Scientific Advisory Committee.

The theme of the Sixth ICUH was “Harnessing the Power of Technology to Achieve Behavior Change and Improve Urban Health.” This included a focus on the consequences of technology on behavioral interventions and health disparities; knowledge management in urban health; and emerging themes in technology and urban health.

This supplement first presents the submitted abstracts selected for oral presentation (Section I) and then presents submitted abstracts selected for poster presentation (Section II).

The abstracts are arranged according to subject matter, and the corresponding headings are listed below. For the oral sessions, each of the 18 subjects is assigned a number (from 01 to 18), the first two numbers of a given abstract. For example, to find Abstract 13-05, the first two digits (13) represent the Cultural and Ethnic Diversity in Urban Health subject, and the last two digits (05) represent the abstract number itself, listed chronologically within each section. For the poster sessions, each of the 18 subjects is assigned a number, preceded by the letter “P” (from P1 to P18), followed by the last two digits that represent the abstract number itself.
