Michigan's Annual Immunization Conferences
The MDHHS Fall Regional Immunization Conferences offer an excellent opportunity for health care professionals to get up-to-date information on vaccines. These conferences have been offered annually for more than 20 years, and consistently receive high ratings from attendees. Their primary goal is to update providers on immunization issues that affect people of all ages.
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 is $50 and is payable online with a credit card. The only method of payment that is accepted for the conferences is online payment with a credit card.
The Welcome Handout includes continuing education information, agenda, disclosures, etc.
