2020 Conference Theme, Objectives and Description:

Advancing Our Public Health System One Step at a Time

Whether you are a student, new professional, emerging leader, or long-time practitioner, researcher, or trail blazer in public health, this conference is for you! You may be looking forward to new professional opportunities, reflecting back on your career path, or at any point along the way. Throughout this journey, there are so many occasions, just like this conference, to learn something new – either new information about a topic you are deeply immersed in, a new topic altogether, or a topic that challenges your current perspective or practice. As we each focus on different and diverse communities, health outcomes, and determinants of health that fall under the broad umbrella of public health, there are numerous possibilities for collaboration – intentionally and creatively – across disciplines, across geography, and across the political spectrum. Effective public health programs and policies are often only achieved through collaboration and almost always require strong leadership. Leaders exist at all levels, and we can all learn to lead in our current roles or we may envision ourselves moving into new positions as managers, directors, CEOs, or elected officials. Learning, collaborating, and leading together are key actions that will move us closer to our shared vision of health equity for all.

  • Explore new topics or skills that challenge your current thinking and/or practice.
  • Collaborate in new ways to break down silos in the public health system.
  • Initiate plans to affect policy change within your roles.

 Submission Deadline: 

Abstracts must be submitted electronically by November 15, 2019. Late or manual submissions will not be reviewed.
