2020 SOPHE Annual Conference: March 18 – 20

Join us for the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) 2020 Annual Conference: “Linking Science & Social Justice: Health Education as a Catalyst for Change.”

Registration is now open! Early Bird registration closes on Dec 15, 2019.

The conference will be in Atlanta, Georgia at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel from March 18 – 20, 2020.

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.
