Proposals are Now Being Accepted……Navigating the World of Health: A Sea of Opportunity….

Submitted by Elizabeth Kiss

The 2017 National Health Outreach Conference planning team invites you to join us in Annapolis, Maryland on May 2-4, 2017! As we convene, our conference theme……Navigating the World of Health: A Sea of Opportunity…. will set the stage to explore new ideas, best practices, promising research, and innovative educational outreach.

This conference seeks to provide a multi-disciplinary and ecological view of health and wellness research, practice and outreach education. The conference will offer a combination of workshops, seminars, research updates, theoretical perspectives, and thought-provoking dialogue to fully engage participants in the dynamic and complex world of health. Using the Social Ecological Model as our framework, the conference tracks will offer opportunity for participants to gain new perspectives on how the multifaceted nature of our society, and how each sector influences health.

Professionals doing work that fosters health, safety, and wellness for individuals, families and communities are invited. Those professionals may include, but are not limited to: faculty in human sciences, food sciences, medical and other academic institutions across public and private colleges, and universities; Cooperative Extension professionals; public health professionals; youth development professionals; local, state and federal agency partners; practitioners in the health care industry; and students.
