"Public and environmental health professionals are confronting a time of many, and major, changes; which is why your planning committee selected this year’s theme of "Making Connections – Partnerships for Better Health Outcomes." We have experienced significant changes in funding at the national, state and local levels; continue to be impacted by the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), and the creation of statewide Accountable Care Organizations; the unforeseeable impacts of climate change; and impaired state waterways. Because of these new and ongoing challenges, the planning committee believes it is more important than ever to develop strong partnerships, and the ability to communicate effectively via the many social media tools now available."
