The Public Health Leaders' Conference (PHL) attracts many local health director’s (more than 60 last year), 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.
