We have gathered a diverse panel of experts who will deliver insightful presentations on a wide range of critical public health topics. From addressing environmental health and climate resilience to innovative approaches in community-centered immunization planning, we’ve assembled a lineup of thought leaders who will share their expertise and knowledge. We aim to inspire, inform, and engage participants in meaningful discussions that drive the future of public health forward. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to be part of the conversation and contribute to the collective advancement of public health on a national and global scale. See you at the conference!


JSI is back for the 11th consecutive year, and we’re turning up the heat with our Social Media Lab. Located at the Ignition Stage, this is the place to be if you’re looking to supercharge your social media game in the name of public health. Stop by for one of our theater presentations, where our experts will share the hottest tips and tricks to boost your social media efforts. Plus, sign up for a one-on-one technical assistance appointment with our gurus to address your unique needs—it’s like having a personal social media coach! The lab is open Monday and Tuesday 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Wednesday 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
