ISHN 2018 Annual School Health Conference

Tuesday, June 19, 2018, 3:30 PM

For the past ten years, the Annual School Health Conference has been a forum for a broad range of professionals and key stakeholders passionate about school health to connect, discuss, learn about and shape the future of school health in Indiana. The inaugural conference in 2008 was the catalyst for the formation of the Indiana School Health Network, in partnership with Covering Kids and Families of Indiana (CKF-IN). Each year since, we have facilitated connections among educators, health care providers, managed care entities, legislators and more; we helped them recognize the connection between children’s health, health care coverage and educational outcomes; we connected seekers of knowledge and resources to leaders in the field and on the cutting edge from our region and across the country; and we have grown in number and scope through our connection to the CKF-IN local coalitions across the state. We are proud of the progress we have made and acknowledge there is much more to be accomplished. Please join us this year as we, again, gather together to network, share, learn, and celebrate a decade of Connecting the Dots. Who Should Attend? Each year, professionals from a wide variety of disciplines attend our conference including: elementary to post-secondary educators superintendents, principals and school board members school nurses public health nurses social workers outreach and enrollment specialists managed care professionals government program associates hospital administrators and staff federally qualified health center and school based health center leadership school health experts from across the nation with interest/expertise in early childhood and child health, obesity prevention, immunizations, coordinated school health and public health AGENDADynamic speakers, subject matter experts, exhibitors and networking opportunities will provide you with valuable information, resources, and inspiration to move your initiatives forward.
