For the first time ever, NACCHO presents NACCHO 360: Raising the Reach of Public Health (July 7-9, 2020; Denver, CO). This innovative convening aims to break down silos by connecting our traditional NACCHO Annual conference with PHIITS: Public Health Informatics, Information Technology, and Surveillance, a reimagined Public Health Informatics (PHI) Conference that goes beyond informatics to also explore local health department information technology infrastructure and public health surveillance.
Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of Public Health and our field’s diverse workforce ranging from clinicians and epidemiologists to health educators and policy analysts, public health professionals often find ourselves siloed. As a result, the struggle to meaningfully engage and collaborate, both within the field and beyond, remains. But in 2020, NACCHO is tackling this long-standing disconnect by changing how we unite our members and partners.
NACCHO 360 doesn’t aim to merge these two complex events; rather, undergirded by the key principles of Public Health 3.0 – strong leadership and workforce; strategic partnerships; flexible and sustainable funding; timely and locally relevant data, metrics, and analytics; and foundational infrastructure – NACCHO 360 will bridge NACCHO Annual and PHIITS to empower cross-pollination that moves the field forward.
