This year’s conference theme “Public Health: Creating Healthier Lives and Stronger Communities,” is centered on the role public health plays in both individual and community health. Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities, in which they live, learn, work, and play. Strategies to improve the public’s health are multifaceted and involve multiple entities, including federal and state governments, health providers, faith- and community-based organizations, and individuals. The objectives of the annual meeting are to:

  • Provide skill-building, professional resources and best practices for the public health sector
  • Highlight policies and strategies addressing healthy behaviors, social and economic factors, and the physical environment, as well as the public health clinical systems of care
  • Optimize the development of strategic alliances and partnerships to maximize efforts to improve the health and well-being of Arkansans.

During the three-day meeting, presentations, exhibits, poster sessions and networking opportunities will be available to attendees.   The meeting will offer the opportunity to learn from the latest research and practice, to focus on community preventative services and policies proven to work, and to network with industry experts, policy makers, and other public health colleagues.  Attendees will be able to choose from multiple education sessions, enabling them to customize their schedule to best fit their public health needs and interests.  We anticipate approximately 10-14 hours of CEUs to be offered.

Mark your calendars for April 29 - May 1, 2019 at the Riverfront Wyndham. You don't want to miss this opportunity!
