About the Conferences

These conferences have been offered annually for the past 20 years and consistently receive high ratings from attendees. Their primary goal is to update health care providers 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 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.

While the conferences are intended for all immunizing providers representing diverse health care settings, physicians’ offices, in particular, may benefit from this immunization update and networking opportunity. However, everyone is welcome to attend this conference, and health care professionals from a variety of settings will find this training opportunity beneficial.

The registration fee for conference attendees is $50 per person and lunch will be included.
