The Fall Regional Immunization Conferences offer an excellent opportunity for health care professionals (HCP) to get updated on immunization. These conferences have been offered annually for 20 years and consistently receive high ratings from attendees. Their primary goal is to update HCP on immunization issues that affect people of all ages – from the very young to the very old. The one-day conference will provide participants with a variety of practice-management tools, techniques and information that will help assure that all of their patients are fully immunized.
The Michigan Fall Regional Immunization Conferences are appropriate for nurses, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, public health staff, pharmacists, physicians, physician assistants, medical and nursing students and anyone interested in learning more about current immunization practice in Michigan. These conferences are suitable for both private and public sector providers. Many providers from local health care departments attend these conferences every year. However, it is important to note that the Michigan Fall Regional Immunization Conferences are especially targeted to providers from the private sector.
We are still in the early planning stages for these conferences. The registration process will begin during the first week of September. As more details become available, they will be posted on this website. Stay tuned!
We will apply for continuing education credits. Further details will be posted on this website as they become available.
