Registration for NACCHO 360, the Reimagined NACCHO Annual Conference, is Open!

Registration for NACCHO 360 has officially opened! Join us, July 7–9 in Denver for a conference that goes beyond informatics to also explore local health department information technology infrastructure and public health surveillance.

NACCHO 360 is not just any other NACCHO Annual conference—for the first time ever, NACCHO Annual convenes with PHIITS: Public Health Informatics, Information Technology, and Surveillance for a reimagined Public Health Informatics (PHI) conference. NACCHO 360 will empower cross-pollination, break down silos, and connect public health professionals and disciplines, while also preserving the pathways that respect the focus and interests of individual public health professions. This conference aims to explore how local health departments and public health stakeholders can extend beyond the status quo to reinvigorate the public health workforce; build and strengthen cross-sector partnerships, and innovate mechanisms for data- and information-sharing.

Conference Tracks

There are six conference tracks involved in fortifying the overall conference theme, Raising the Reach of Public Health. Tracks include:

  • Track 1: Emerging Trends in Public Health and Public Health Policy, is all about how local health departments are developing public health policies, plans, and laws to respond to emerging trends.
  • Track 2: Leadership and Workforce Development, focuses on assuring a competent workforce when contending with shrinking budgets and resources, staff reductions, increased workloads, and the ever-changing public health threats.
  • Track 3: Community Engagement and Health Linkages, spotlights local health departments and their vital leadership role in convening health agencies, stakeholder organizations, and individuals in the community to collaboratively identify community health priorities and more.
  • Track 4: Healthy Behaviors, aims to highlight data-driven approaches or initiatives to identify trends in behavioral health issues and collaborate with cross-sector stakeholders and community partners to respond.
  • Track 5: Equity and Social Justice, explores how creating health equity requires both mitigating inequitable health outcomes through conventional programs and services and acting on the political and economic systems and powers that establish and uphold social inequities.
  • Track 6: Applying Information and Technology to Improve Essential Public Health Services, showcases stakeholders’ efforts to collaborate, enhance existing infrastructure, and apply the necessary skills to improve the delivery of public health services. These varying tracks all have the main purpose of improving the health of the communities we serve.

Full descriptions of the conference tracks are available to view online.
