The 2013 US Public Health Service’s Scientific and Training Symposiumwill be held at the Renaissance Hotel in Glendale, Arizona from May 21 to 23, 2013. The Symposium is affordable and presents a range of continuing education, training and networking opportunities for public health folks at all levels as well as students and teachers interested in public health.    

The theme for the Symposium is “Public Health Prevention and Care: Bridging the Gaps.”  The focus is on the use of the National Prevention Strategy to work with communities and stakeholders at the local, state, Tribal, national and international level to address health equity among border, cross cultural and at-risk populations.  All of the living former US Surgeons General have been invited to attend and several have accepted and they’ll be participating in a panel discussion the following morning.  Here’s how to register.
