April 26-29, 2003 ~ San Diego, CA ~ Westin Horton Plaza

Opening Keynote Speaker ~ Dr. David Satcher, former US Surgeon General

Share your work and get noticed! More than 500 of your colleagues from community, civic, government, philanthropic and health delivery organizations, health professionals schools, colleges and universities will attend this exciting four-day event. Submit your proposal today for a workshop, poster session or site visit.

CCPH’s 7th annual conference will demonstrate the significant outcomes and changes that can result from community-campus partnerships, and advance the skills, tools and competencies needed to transform partnerships “to a new level.” “A new level” is something that each partnership needs to define for itself. For example, perhaps “a new level” of a service-learning partnership might be to involve students from multiple disciplines, or to incorporate community-based research into the partnership’s work or to develop a campus center for service-learning. “A new level” for a partnership that is aiming to eliminate health disparities in communities of color might be to connect the partnership’s work to efforts to recruit and retain students of color into the health professions. Among the major themes to be discussed are:

* Community-campus partnerships for increasing access to care
* Community-campus partnerships for workforce development and diversity
* Community-campus partnerships for promoting health and eliminating health disparities
* Community-campus partnerships for improving education in the health professions or in health-related disciplines
* Community-campus partnerships for civic engagement and social change
* Community-campus partnerships for community and economic development
* Partnership basics toolbox
* Partnership sustainability toolbox
