Registration now open: World Noncommunicable Diseases Congress coming to U-M in June
Attention noncommunicable disease (NCD) experts, epidemiologists, students, community health workers, public health practitioners, clinicians, urban planners, policymakers, patient educators and implementation science specialists: The World NCD Congress is coming to Ann Arbor on June 9-11! This free opportunity allows attendees to earn up to 14 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Originally slated as a four-day in person event in 2020, the 2nd World NCD Congress was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The congress will bring together stakeholders from around the world and across diverse sectors to address the critical, growing impact of NCDs on the wellbeing and economies of all nations.
With five sessions across two and a half days, the congress will address the evidence base and implementation lessons for root causes of NCDs within a learning health systems framework. The first day will focus on prioritizing prevention and learning health system applications, another will cover health disparities and key NCDs such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular and kidney disease. The final day will cover the impact of environment and development on health.
The virtual World NCD Congress 2022 will spark a conversation around the vital importance of upstream prevention using innovative yet pragmatic approaches enshrined in learning health systems and learning communities. Participants will explore how such approaches may be applied in practice locally, nationally, and internationally.
