The public health pre-conference session, Tuesday, April 26, will include an interactive session by the Public Health Law Center and a session by the Wichita State University Center for Public Health Initiatives on addressing planned or emergency staffing changes; the Maternal and Child Health pre-conference session provides opportunities to learn more about the Title V Maternal and Child Health program and Title X Family Planning guidelines.

New this year—the conference committee has partnered with the Kansas Alliance for Drug Endangered Children (KADEC). KADEC will host an all-day pre-conference session, Tuesday, April 26, which will be beneficial for front line staff. Topics include current drug trends, how to identify children living in drug environments and adverse childhood experiences.

The two day general conference will feature state and nationally recognized keynote speakers on topics including the impact of childhood stress and trauma on adult health outcomes, cultural competency, recent disease outbreaks and emerging threats, and the impact of prescription drug abuse on public health. In addition, a wide selection of breakout sessions tailored to meet the changing needs of the populations served through public health programs and initiatives will be offered.

The Maternal and Child Health and Healthy Start Home Visitor sessions will address safe sleep, developmental screenings, safe homes, infant child development and mental health, tobacco cessation during pregnancy, home visitor safety, bullying prevention and intervention, and more.

The public health sessions will include adverse childhood experiences, public health law, quality improvement, environmental health, chronic disease self-management in schools, sexual violence prevention in schools, e-cigarettes and other learning opportunities. The conference will also include café sessions which offer participants an opportunity to participate in a range of focused topics including EpiTrax, Catalyst, oral health, breastfeeding, workforce development initiatives and more in a roundtable setting.
