Conference Poster Presentations

The 2022 NC Public Health Leaders’ Conference Planning Committee hopes to again offer a poster exhibit (14 posters) at the conference. The intent is to premier some of the quality work that originates from within DPH, so we hope a number of you will consider a submission. 
A poster does not have to be newly developed and could have been displayed at another conference already; however, it probably should have been generated within the last year to eighteen months, with preference given to those posters relevant to this year’s theme, “Tools of the Trade: Innovating while Renovating during COVID.”   
It is hoped one or more individuals who developed the poster will be available at the exhibit at least during the conference breaks and lunch, although the posters will be on display at all times between 10 am on Thursday, May 19 through noon on May 20. Specific times will be outlined once the agenda is finalized and posters selected. It is not mandatory to be registered for the conference itself UNLESS you are attending any plenary or workshop and/or eating at the Thursday lunch buffet.  Submissions are due no later than May 10.   Contact Debi Nelson at [email protected] with questions.

Exhibitor Information

The Public Health Leaders' Conference (PHL) attracts many local health director’s (more than 60 at last conference), NC Department of Health and Human Services/Department of Public Health branch heads and section chiefs, and directors and program leaders of many public health entities from across the state.  As always, it’s an excellent opportunity to meet and mingle with more than 400 of the state’s top public health leaders.  When you reach the PHL attendees, you also reach the medical care facilities, health departments, state government departments and universities where they work and the people they work with.
