CE Information: List of sessions and CE eligibility per designation

This conference brings together public health professionals from across the Commonwealth and surrounding states with the common goal of giving public health practitioners the best continuing education opportunities available anywhere, all from the comfort of their own homes. This year we continue to expand our scope and reach out to other disciplines that contribute to public health!

Our educational program will be presented as two days of live sessions, where attendees will experience a traditional conference agenda curated by our Conference Committee as well as "On-Demand" content that can be accessed by attendees at a later date and at their own pace. This format will offer the flexibility of a fully online event, as well as the opportunity to interact with speakers and attendees in a live format.

Overall conference objectives:

  • Identify challenges, trends and emerging issues, as well as related practices and solutions
  • Explore the current status of public health evidence, research, policy and practice
  • Explore evidence-based education programs and health promotion practices
  • Access and engage a network of public health professionals & partners for initiating, improving or expanding public health initiatives
