2021 Mid-Atlantic Regional Public Health Conference
The Mid-Atlantic Partnership, consists of the public health associations of Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland, is organizing a joint annual conference for the region. As public health professionals battling the pandemic, we know that social determinants of health can be individualized to a community, region or race. This year’s conference will focus on empowering communities to find solutions around social determinants of health to achieve better outcomes – how to scale and adapt to address health inequities, integration of public health and health care, race as an important public health crisis, policy implications on local/regional communities, research and preparedness for major disasters.
Our kick-off event will include the public health leadership from each state addressing this important topic. Each topic will cover experts from each state that will give participants an opportunity to understand local, state and regional perspective and solutions. We understand that most of the events are virtual, so we have ample opportunities for networking and socializing.

DECEMBER PUBLIC HEALTH HANGOUT
Dear Public Health Professionals,
Thank you for your participation and discussion during our Public Health Hangouts every month. With the country going through major COVID surges, we continue our tireless work as public health leaders to serve the most vulnerable and reduce the intensity of the virus.
The COVID-19 vaccine is bringing a sense of hope and optimism as we work to turn the tide on the virus. Although we have many reasons to celebrate, we also realize that the vaccine is no magic bullet to end the pandemic. Our task continues to be daunting – preparing and educating people on the efficacy and safety of the vaccine, understanding how it works, side effects, and how it will protect you, transportation of the vaccine, storage, managing the two doses, precautions to take between the two doses and above all, managing the staffing shortages to administer the COVID-19 vaccine.
This brings us to the topic planned for the next Public Health Hangout – how to support the success of the vaccine with education and facts so that we can get more people in the fold to take the vaccine. Let’s talk about public health strategies and messaging to disseminate, dissipate concerns over taking the vaccine and support our frontline heroes to continue to save lives!
As a reminder, you may have received the invitation to our inaugural virtual Mid-Atlantic Public Health Conference on January 14 and 15, 2021. The theme, “Empowering Communities to Address the Social Determinants of Health” will provide public health students, professionals and partners across our region with the opportunity to learn about and engage in discussions on innovative strategies for the most pressing issues in the region.
