National Virtual Conference September 14 & 15
September 14, 2022 – September 15, 2022
Healthy Active Communities sets out to explore and expand conversations around the impacts of policy and systems change to reduce chronic conditions in communities through health equity, nutrition security, and safe physical activity with weight-neutral approaches.
Our 2022 conference will be a great place for students and professionals in national, tribal, state and local public health; community organizations and nonprofits; health care professionals; and urban and regional transportation planners to contribute and learn. We hope insight from across the United States will foster innovation, enthusiasm, and progress in communities around Oregon and beyond. Click here to look over our conference topics. We invite you to send us an email if you have ideas about or interest in presenting!
We invite anyone with a success story or idea(s) related to policy systems and environmental change to submit an abstract for a panel or 15-minute presentation. Abstracts are due June 27, 2022. If you have any questions about abstracts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
