The 2024 Summit theme will be a grand celebration of 50 years of the Association’s pursuit to advance the health of Alaskans and Alaska. The Summit will offer space for us to reflect on the accomplishments and impact of the Association as well as outlining a vision for the next half century. Featuring nationally-known keynote speakers, professional development opportunities, and the latest work of your public health colleagues from the UA system, the Alaska Department of Health, and other Alaska health and social service organizations through interactive sessions, posters, and our new lighting-round talks. Sessions address a wide variety of important focal areas including: 

  • Climate & Environment
  • Health Equity
  • Public Heath Infrastructure
  • Public Health Programming
  • Sexual Health & Wellness
  • Rebuilding Trust in Public Health

As always, health professionals who attend will have the opportunity to earn continuing education credits.
