Closing Remarks

 

  • Over the years, the branding and naming of this conference has evolved to reflect its evolving nature. The conference was originally referenced as the State Health Director’s Annual Meeting with Local Health Directors, then evolved to the annual State Health Director’s Conference.
  • The scope of this annual conference has been gradually broadened over the last 5+ years to be more inclusive of partners external to the NC Division of Public Health and NC’s Local Health Departments. 
  • In collaboration with the NC Division of Public Health and Local Health Departments, these other public health partners work to improve the public’s health, to improve public health systems in our state, to ensure engagement across multiple sectors that can impact changes in our citizens’ health status and, more recently, to develop public health leaders.  Moving forward, the conference will continue to seek speakers and programming that address these key areas.

 

The 2018 North Carolina Public Health Leaders' Conference will focus on national and local efforts to position our state in a Public Health 3.0 model, which includes:

 

  • Public Health Leaders embracing the role of Chief Health Strategist in their communities
  • Deliberate collaboration across both health and non-health sectors
  • Building on local health improvement success with a focus on social and environmental determinants of health to achieve health equity
  • Timely, reliable, geographically granular, and actionable data
  • Innovative funding models to support PH 3.0, core infrastructure, community-level work, and determinants of health work
