The Changing Face of Health Education and Health Promotion

programs, research and practice to cross over professional boundaries and

nationally recognized speakers will enable you to: develop skills and
knowledge to communicate health messages to various communities; discuss
emerging issues and innovative ways to foster collaboration between health
education and culturally effective programming; and network with public
health and health education colleagues from around the country to share best
practices and lessons learned from a variety of health settings.
