Building on the success of the first two national HIA meetings, the 2015 conference is designed to appeal to anyone interested in learning more about HIAs and advancing the field, especially decision-makers and program leaders from multiple sectors and at all levels of government. The audience will include current HIA practitioners; public health, planning, and health policy professionals; community-based organizations; advocacy groups; researchers; academicians and students; elected officials and their staffs; and decision-makers from non-health agencies who might use or rely on the results of an HIA, such as in planning, transportation, housing, agriculture, energy, environment, and education. Meeting objectives include:
Introducing public health professionals and others to the appropriate applications, methods, opportunities, and challenges involved in conducting an HIA.
Providing a forum for HIA practitioners to showcase their work through roundtables and oral and poster presentations, as well as to learn from each other and experts in related disciplines.
Showing decision-makers and program leaders the practical aspects of implementing HIAs in a range of policy settings.
