Location: Atlanta, GA
Abstract Submissions Closed

The theme for the 2020 Annual Meeting is “Linking Science & Social Justice: Health Education as a Catalyst for Change”.

Public health education professionals and others who seek to improve health outcomes often find their efforts are affected by larger societal forces, including disparities and social inequalities. These social justice issues severely affect outcomes in health care, education, mental health, the economy, and other areas that have a major influence on the quality of life for individuals and families.

This conference will address ways that public health education professionals can have an impact on these social justice issues, through policy, advocacy, and communications; teaching and professional preparation; building and fostering effective partnerships; strengthening research translation and implementation; and addressing the continuum of prevention and care.

SOPHE’s Annual Conference offers health education specialists and those working in health education and health promotion:

  • New ideas and skills through workshops, round-table discussions, sessions, think tanks and posters.
  • Continuing education opportunities for professionals who may not have immediate access to key leaders in the field.
  • Opportunities to network with other professionals across the country and the world.
  • Introductions to the latest work and research in the field.
