The 2020 NHCPC Conference will feature five primary tracks supporting this year’s theme, "2020 Vision: Coalitions Focused on the Future, Empowered by the Past." By using our hindsight to inform the future, we can assess how our preparedness and response efforts have previously fallen short, and collectively create a renewed vision that allows us to anticipate, address and stabilize current gaps in the communities we’ve committed to protect. The NHCPC Program Advisory Committee is seeking abstracts that will empower coalitions to reach beyond the status quo to create and implement multidisciplinary, cross-sector partnerships and launch increased opportunities for innovative information sharing. Help inspire coalition leaders by sharing your success in the five tracks, which include: Executive Coalition Leadership; Expanding and Sustaining Coalitions; Emerging Threats; Pediatrics; and Resources, New Technologies, and Tools to Share.
