A brief look back at the National Health Outreach Conference

By Sharon Mulé, staff development coordinator, Extension Center for Family Development

The National Health Outreach Conference was a success! Over 350 people from across the country gathered in Bloomington last week to engage in creating a culture of health. Here’s a brief recap:

  • Not one, but nine, keynote presenters shared research and implementation strategies. 
  • The conference featured the first Community Health Transformation Institute, which ran concurrently with the conference offerings. 
  • Five programs from across the nation were honored with Priester Awards, including Family Development’s own Systems Approaches for Healthy Communities professional development program.
  • The poster session featured an impressive 28 displays.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this conference a success! We couldn't have done it without you.

Check out the conference Facebook page for a little taste of what happened. And watch a future issue of Family Matters for more information on the conference that everyone can use.
