Join us at the 12th Annual Nevada Health Conference

On November 13-14, Immunize Nevada will once again bring together over 250 healthcare professionals from across the country, state, and region to map a roadway to a healthier Nevada. I hope to see you at this must-attend event!

Our continued collaboration with the Nevada State Division of Public and Behavioral Health once again offers an integrated multi-track immunization, maternal child health, and chronic disease agenda full of new ideas, different perspectives, and an opportunity to incorporate best practices into your daily work. We're grateful to Seqirus and all our sponsors for their support, their generosity helps keep registration fees affordable. 

Take a look at the thought-provoking conference agenda and start planning which sessions you'll attend.

We kick-off the conference with keynote speaker, Dara Lieberman, Senior Government Relations Manager,Trust for America's Health. Dara will discuss how policies and activities at the federal level affect people and programs at the state level; and will provide concrete ways we can all get involved and take action. We close the day with Maureen Schafer, Chief of Staff, UNLV School of Medicine to showcase the changing landscape of healthcare in Nevada.

  • Interested in immunization topics? Attend sessions with local and national experts on HPV vaccination, influenza, communications, outbreak response, and barriers to refugee vaccination. Day 2's intensive session includes in-depth sessions on adolescent vaccines. 
  • Are you working to improve the health of women and children? Learn best practices in sessions with experts on social determinants of health, suicide prevention, services for IPV survivors, and preventing perinatal hepatitis B. Attendees of Day 2's maternal child health session will receive a variety of perspectives on best practices for healthy moms and healthy babies. 
  • Is fighting chronic disease a priority? Join colleagues working towards a healthy Nevada in sessions on breast cancer prevention, the importance of community health workers, and supportive care for LGTBQ elders. 
  • And if you’re interested in speaking up for public health, be sure to attend the extended media training workshop with Nevada Broadcasters Assocation on Day 1.
