The group's annual meeting attracted
administrators and front-line professionals from the fields of
health and human services, as well as legislators, policy-makers and
advocates who have a special interest in public health. This year's
conference theme was "Community Health: Our Foundation: Our Future."
The agenda for the gathering focused on
the national obesity epidemic, agro-terrorism, emergency readiness,
chronic and infectious disease, social marketing, volunteerism, and
other core public health issues.
