President's Message from Debbie Peet - August 2019

Our 27th Annual Conference in Denver, CO was a great success.  We had a great turn-out of Board of Health members and public health professionals who shared best practices of the six functions of governance, expanded their network, and learned from each other’s experiences.  It was refreshing to take time out from routine and see each other face-to-face, exchange ideas, and smiles, in the beautiful state of Colorado with almost 200 attendees!

Many contributed to the success of the conference. The NALBOH Board again thanks the conference planning committee, and the City of Denver for hosting the conference and welcoming us to a great conference venue.  We also thank our keynotes, Dr. Ned Calonge, Dr. Brian Shiozawa, and Dr. Pamela Aaltonen. for their gracious partnerships with us.  Last but not least, our conference would not have taken place without the support of our sponsors and exhibitors.  We especially would like to acknowledge the Kresge Foundation, our Platinum Sponsor, and the Network for Public Health Law, our Silver Sponsor. I would also like to personally thank Julie Lederhaus, Jamie Michael, and Eric Ostermann - our NALBOH staff, for their guidance and support!

We look forward to our next annual conference, which will be in Grand Rapids, Michigan, August 18-20. Save the date now!

In best health,

Debbie Peet
