NNPHI Annual Conferences 

The NNPHI Annual Conference is the only national meeting dedicated to supporting and highlighting the work of the nation's public health institutes (PHIs).  Held every year since 2001, the conference shares examples of PHIs working in close collaboration with state and local health departments, community-based organizations, universities, and other multi-sector partners to support the implementation of health transformation initiatives. Conference topics include health equity, evidence-based public health, and discussion related to sustainability for public health institutes.  The content of the annual conference is designed primarily by NNPHI members and showcases innovations and trends in supporting healthy communities on the federal, state, and local levels.

PHI leaders and staff are strongly encouraged to attend the NNPHI Annual Conference, which features content and capacity-building workshops relevant to current and emerging PHIs. NNPHI members receive a discount on registration fees.  The next NNPHI Annual Conference is May 12-14, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
