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!
