26th Annual Art and Science of Health Promotion Conference | April 27-29, 2016 | Orlando, FL

What is the purpose of health promotion? Money, health, or more? Do we need to produce a huge ROI, or do we need to engage people, improve health, and better serve the organization’s or community’s broader goals? This year’s Art and Science of Health Promotion conference will help health promotion practitioners to answer these questions. 

The Art and Science of Health Promotion Conference is a leading voice in the health promotion industry. It brings together more than 600 professionals with a passion for health promotion – individuals who represent the most successful programs in workplace, clinical, educational, and community settings. This is your opportunity to meet them, learn from them, share experience, connect, and collaborate.
