Call for Conference Breakout Sessions is Open

ACHI is accepting presentation proposals with an emphasis on health equity and disparities, across four specific topic tracks.

All submissions must address one of the conference’s four topic tracks below. In addition, the overall conference will reflect the cross-cutting theme of working to achieve health status equity, and proposals are encouraged to address equity and disparities issues.

  • Leading Community Health Assessments to Set Priorities, Programs, and Policies
  • Achieving Community Benefit Excellence
  • Improving Health by Addressing Our Social and Built Environments
  • Building the Skills of Community Health Leaders (for Today and the Future)

What We’re Looking For
We are seeking session leaders who have successful experiences, tools, and approaches that reflect their work in community health or community benefit. The conference has a strong bias toward presenting and discussing practical solutions and tools, and an emphasis on sharing work that has demonstrated results.

We also particularly invite speakers who are willing both to present and to engage in dialogue with the audience.
