General Information

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 as we 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.

  1. Share community-based outreach, best practices, and applied research that promotes and sustains healthy living and wellness;
  2. Explore evidence and practice-based strategies and approaches that address complex societal issues through a social-ecological framework; and
  3. Engage with others from diverse backgrounds, areas of expertise, and perspectives, resulting in new connections, partnerships, and cross-sector collaborations.
