Started in 1991, the Summer Institute for Public Health Practice has become a tradition for NWCPHP and regional public health practitioners. This three-and-a-half day, hands-on training is part of our continuum of trainings—which ranges from one-hour webinars to yearlong certificate programs.

What makes the Summer Institute so beloved? Here are our top five reasons:

  1. Gain new skills, immediately applicable to the workplace. The Summer Institute is designed with the busy, working professional in mind; participants leave with practical skills in a subject of their choosing.
  2. Advance knowledge of industry trends, challenges, and promising solutions. Participants attend plenary sessions with national leaders and newly revised courses taught by subject-matter experts. This year's Summer Institute will focus on data and strategies for creating health equity.
  3. Network and engage with professionals from around the region. Learning is not confined to coursework and plenary sessions alone. During the week, participants develop new partnerships, strengthen existing ties, and share best practices with colleagues.
  4. Get inspired and leave with new ways to approach organizational challenges. Take a break from the daily grind. After attending the Summer Institute, participants return invigorated and ready to deliver their best creative work.
  5. Invest in workforce development without breaking the bank. The Summer Institute offers group and early bird discounts, allowing supervisors to cross-train teams or send a cohort to advance a project. Participants can also apply for the following continuing education credits: CECH, CME, CNE, CPH, IACET, and MCHES.

Register today to receive the early bird special: $1,250 per person or $1,200 per person for groups of three or more from the same organization. Early bird rates end June 1, 2015.
