The objective of the 2010 Public Health Conference is to address how public health practitioners can meet the growing challenges of protecting the public’s health in an ever-evolving environment. A full plenary of outstanding speakers will present on topics that illustrate the critical balance of “people, places, practices and partnerships” that serve as the keys to ensuring a healthy future well beyond the new decade.

Continued, broad-based participation has established this meeting as a preeminent public health conference, distinguished by a number of elements:

  • The ability to draw prominent public health leaders to frame public health practice in the context of national and local public health issues
  • A highly interactive format that promotes learning, discussion and debate among public health experts and participants from multiple disciplines and varied skill levels
  • Presentations that range in focus from intensive skills-building workshops to broad perspectives on key public health strategies
  • A diverse and committed base of support from professional associations that help to review advances in the public health field and recommend themes and topics for each conference
