In addition to three keynote addresses, the conference will feature workshops and sessions that address governance and leadership, board development, public health policy and public health priorities. 

Other conference highlights include tours of the Atlanta Beltline redevelopment project, CDC Emergency Operations Center and CDC Museum. Also, continuing education credits will be available for physicians, nurses and health educators. Veterinarian credits are pending.

Georgia will be featured in several ways at the conference, including a keynote address by Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D., a welcome address by state board of health chair Gary Nelson, Ph.D., an advocacy workshop featuring a panel from Georgia (sponsored by the Emory Public Health Training Center) and a special lunch meeting for members of Georgia's  local boards of  health.

Zeus has come to rescue Vital Records.  
 
Appropriately named after the Greek king of gods, the BancTec IntelliScan® eXtreme Document Solutions (XDS) scanner is taking the Georgia Department of Public Health’s (DPH) Vital Records team from paper-driven to the electronic realm in a big way. 
 
The machine’s capabilities include high volume scanning rates of 250 to 500 sheets per minute, making it possible to scan an entire box of birth or death records in half an hour.
