16th Annual Health Education Advocacy Summit
Sponsored by the Coalition of National Health Education Organizations and Partner Organizations
March 2-4, 2013 | Washington Court Hotel | Washington, DC
Registration has now closed
This year's Summit will focus on strategies to advocate for our profession so that we can reach our desired outcomes in the current political climate. We will also feature a session on the "Health in all Policies" perspective and what people are doing in other sectors (e.g., housing, education, transportation) to expand advocacy efforts.
While we have accomplished huge victories in sustaining the Affordable Care Act (ACA), we still have our work cut out for us. Looming deficit reduction and sequestration proposals could target prevention provisions in the ACA and cut public health education programs, resulting in job loss and hampering our school and community health education programs.
Let's rally our collective voices to educate legislators and the administration on the value of continued investments in prevention – for improving lives, reducing health care costs, and contributing to a sound economy. Stand with us at the Health Education Advocacy Summit and be a part of the solution!
Registration fees include training materials, lunch on Sunday, March 3rd, and admission to all educational sessions.
