This goes without saying, we really missed you all this year in person, but Thank You to everyone who attended this year’s EDNCPHA conference virtually! We had an enlightening presentation about an ongoing public health issue that touches many of our personal and work lives daily—the opioid epidemic. Speaker, Nidhi Sachdeva, really moved us to dive deeper into what has led us to where we are and inspired us with hope in addressing the epidemic. A truly remarkable presentation!
We are excited to inform you all that this year we are back and planning our traditional in person shenanigans! This year the health education section is in the works to include some local organizations from the Outer Banks, the 410 on social media and advertising, a trip into what is happening in the tobacco world from the experts, and of course we are sprinkling in some networking and self-care opportunities. Although speakers aren’t confirmed and topics solidified quite yet, we plan to make it a conference you don’t want to miss, so be sure to sign up for our section membership today. We will see you there! Let me know if you have any questions.
