Until we can resume an in-person National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing and Media, conference organizers would like to present an exciting, alternative experience this year.

Save the Date
October 6 – 8, 2020
“From 2020 Hindsight to 20/20 Foresight:
What Have We Learned?
Where Do We Go From Here?”

The National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are pleased to announce a multi-day, online health communication, marketing, and media forum.  Join us for a free, two-hour exploration each day (October 6-8, 2020) to learn from leading experts including a showcase of top-notch panel discussions and innovative ideas to advance evidence-based strategies in the field of health communication, marketing, and media.

In addition, selected abstracts submitted for the 2020 in-person conference will be featured in an asynchronous presentation platform. Authors of these abstracts will be contacted directly and given instructions on how to prepare and format their presentations for this online teaching and learning opportunity.

To receive email updates and registration information for this timely and relevant health communication, marketing and media forum, go to www.nphic.org/nchcmmexternal icon and sign up.

All of us are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and contributing to the response in various ways. In fact, many of you are on the front lines of this public health crisis and we thank you for your commitment and service to our nation!

As we look ahead, we do not anticipate the remainder of the spring or summer to be conducive to holding large scale gatherings.  As a result, the Advisory Board for the 2020 National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing and Media has decided not to host an in-person conference this year.  Instead, the Advisory Board will consider options for holding an alternative event(s) in early or late fall.

We will keep you informed as we continue to look for alternative solutions for sharing important communication, marketing, and media strategies.

In the meantime, our heartfelt appreciation goes to our Conference Advisory Board and Planning Committee for the many hours of planning they put into the conference.  We also extend thanks to those who submitted abstracts along with others who reviewed them.  Please know that the Advisory Board and Planning Committee will be exploring opportunities to showcase some of the impressive abstracts that were submitted.

We look forward to sharing details as they develop.  Be sure to sign up to receive updates for the NCHCMM at www.cdc.gov/nchcmm.

Thank you for your continued commitment to public health and to the National Conference on Health Communication Marketing and Media.
