Join an interprofessional audience for a day of inspiring innovations to enhance your own practice…through a unique
grouping of discussions centering on a spectrum of global and public health issues, including those incorporating research and involving diverse populations and creative problem solving.
This program will address the many facets of global and public health from immigration and refugee advocacy, to local and global short-term experiences, the opioid crisis, human trafficking, water infrastructure in developing countries, and sustainable agriculture to ensure food security and community health. Presentations will be from a range of disciplines – nursing, nutrition, medicine, public health, law, social justice, and more.
The event is co-sponsored by the College’s Continuing Education Program and the MacDonald Center for Obesity
Prevention and Education. The theme of Innovations in Best Practice incorporates evidence-based work and research that focuses on excellence in practice, education, and leadership.
