2017 National Conference on Immunization Coalitions and Partnerships to be held as part of Nevada Health Conference in November!

As you probably knew, there was going to be no scheduled National Conference on Immunization Coalitions and Partnerships (NCICP) in 2017. But we all know the importance of networking with each other, and as an alternative solution, Immunize Nevada has stepped up and is inviting coalition colleagues to join them at the annual Nevada Health Conference, November 13–14, 2017, at Green Valley Ranch in Las Vegas. The national coalition conference planning committee supports this as an option for face-to-face interaction in 2017, and encourages all coalition leaders and members to attend this somewhat abbreviated NCICP meeting!

The Nevada Health Conference is a 2-day conference with breakout and intensive day-long sessions. Day 1 breakout sessions typically cover current immunization, maternal child health, and chronic disease topics. Day 2 sessions allow attendees to choose from four session tracks for a day-long, deep dive into that subject matter. One of these four tracks will cover coalition-focused topics such as advocacy, fundraising, best practices, collaboration, and more.

We invite you to save the date for this opportunity; more information will follow once registration is open. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Heidi Parker, executive director, Immunize Nevada directly at
