NCCOR Is Going To APHA 2019!
November 1, 2019
NCCOR is headed to Philadelphia, PA for the American Public Health Association (APHA) 2019 Annual Meeting and Expo! More than 12,000 public health professionals will gather from Nov. 2-6 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Creating the Healthiest Nation: For Science. For Action. For Health.”
Stop by the NCCOR booth (#1232) in the exhibit hall for information on the Collaborative’s latest resources for public health researchers and practitioners.
This year, NCCOR is highlighting its tools and resources for students, including a new guide to walk students through using NCCOR’s tools for research and coursework, and a factsheet to help professors use NCCOR tools in the classroom. Students can also sign up for the NCCOR Student Hub, a quarterly e-newsletter featuring case studies on how students can make the most of the tools and much more!
