​Building on more than a decade of collaborative work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and national public health partner organizations, the 2019 Public Health Improvement T​raining​ (PHIT) offers networking opportunities alongside interactive learning and skill-building sessions, with topics including quality improvement (QI), performance management, national voluntary accreditation, health assessment, and improvement planning. Annually, PHIT features hands-on sessions and discussion groups that renew commitment to performance excellence and inspire new insight long after the convening ends. PHIT 2019 is taking place June 12-13 in New Orleans, LA.

At PHIT, you will learn from practitioners, professional trainers, and national partners, participate in small workshops, gain insight into the relationships between various public health improvement initiatives and tools, including accreditation and state/community health improvement planning frameworks, and hear and share valuable tips.
