Registration for the second National Health Impact Assessment (HIA) Meeting is now open.

February 28, 2013

This conference will take place September 24-25 in Washington, DC. The meeting will bring together policymakers; public health professionals; HIA practitioners; community-based organizations; researchers; decision makers from non-health agencies who might use or rely on the results of an HIA, such as planning, transportation, housing, agriculture, energy, environment, and education; and others with an interest in learning more about HIAs.

If you’re new to HIA, the idea is that the most urgent health issues — like obesity, asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and injuries — are driven by the conditions in the places where we live and work. More and more policymakers and communities are finding HIA to be a useful tool to take health into account when making the decisions in other sectors. This conference is a chance to learn more about this fast-growing field.

The agenda will include tracks for policymakers and those new to HIA, as well as plenary and general sessions covering a wide range of topics of importance for the field. It will also offer a special, one-day summit tailored specifically to policymakers.

Attendance is limited. Registration last year was cut off due to high demand. Sign up early to ensure your spot. 

Abstract and scholarship applications are also being accepted via the online registration system. Abstracts are due May 29, and scholarships are due June 12.
