New Orleans, LA
Each year, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) Annual convenes hundreds of local health department leaders, staff, and partners from across the nation to share ideas, innovations, and perspectives on key public health practice issues. NACCHO Annual 2018 will take place July 10–12 in New Orleans. This year’s conference theme, “Unleashing the Power of Public Health,” highlights the impact public health makes on entire communities to mitigate disasters and outbreaks and improve population health and health outcomes. This year’s six educational tracks are aligned with current local health department activities to improve day-to-day local public health practice.
