National Health Outreach Conference - Save the Date


The 2022 National Health Outreach Conference (NHOC) will be held May 4-6 in Kansas City, MO.   Be sure to put those dates on your calendar now, so that you won't miss out on Cooperative Extension's annual health-focused conference.  The conference will focus on the long-term goals of improving population health and achieving equity in health status.  Conference sessions will focus on the powerful roles of employment, education, income, housing, access to healthy foods, the physical environment, health systems and services, social support systems, community infrastructure, and public safety in ensuring that all people have an equal opportunity to experience optimal health and well-being.  Watch for additional information, including then call for proposals later this fall.
