Presenting at NCIHC in Chicago

Presenting at NCIHC in Chicago

Dawn has been selected to present at the 9th National Conference on Immunization and Health Coalitions (NCIHC) in Chicago at the end of May.  She’ll be presenting with PKIDs and Every Child by Two on a panel on how to best utilize social media for building coalitions and engaging parents to increase immunization coverage.

Here is a little bit more about the conference:

The NCIHC is intended to advance educational and networking opportunities for members of health coalitions and the public health community. NCIHC 2010 will showcase successful ways in which health coalitions can improve immunization protection, prevent disease, improve access to care and health outcomes for under served populations, reduce racial, ethnic, and geographic health disparities, educate new populations, and build community health infrastructures. The purpose of the conference is to facilitate the sharing of successful strategies by coalitions that address immunization and other health issues in order to strengthen their efforts and thereby, improve the health status of our communities.

I’m so excited to present with these other fantastic organizations! Hope to see you in Chi-Town!
