Events and Conferences
Every year, NACCHO hosts several events and conferences designed to help local health officials sharpen their skills and improve their community’s health.
The 2018 NACCHO Annual Conference is the only conference that speaks directly to the daily challenges and opportunities that local health officials and their staff face. The annual conference will be held July 10–12 at the New Orleans Marriott. The conference offers an opportunity for local health department staff, partners, funders, and individuals invested in local public health to share the latest research, ideas, strategies and innovations. Participants will build and network around the issues and topics that concern local public health. The 2018 conference theme is Unleashing the Power of Local Public Health.
Since 2003, the Public Health Informatics conference has provided a premier venue for groundbreaking discussions and opportunities to address the science of public health informatics, evolving public health systems, and public health’s role in our Nation’s expanding health information technology infrastructure. Held biennally, the conference aims to provide a forum for new and seasoned public health, healthcare, and information technology professionals to exchange experiences, ideas, and strategies about public health informatics that are paramount to the advancement of public health practice and health equity.
The Preparedness Summit is the first and longest running national conference on public health preparedness. Since its beginning in 2006, the NACCHO has taken a leadership role in convening a wide array of partners to participate in the Summit; presenting new research findings, sharing tools and resources, and providing a variety of opportunities for attendees to learn how to implement model practices that enhance the nation’s capabilities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and other emergencies.
