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.

Every year, more and more Americans travel internationally, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Some travel for business or to volunteer, while others visit loved ones or take vacations to faraway lands, each of which has varying degrees of health risks. These risks, whether visiting Monaco or Mozambique, are why the first destination before departure should be to a travel health clinic.
