The Public Health Conference of Iowa

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted public health’s leadership role in the safety and security of our communities. To keep public health at the forefront of sharing lessons learned, we are excited to announce the rebranding of Iowa’s premiere annual public health conference.

The Public Health Conference of Iowa will be held virtually during National Public Health Week – April 5-9, 2021. This year’s theme is Public Health in Action: Taking on a Pandemic, Health Equity, Natural Disasters and More!

The week will consist of keynote speakers, concurrent session presentations from colleagues across the state, poster presentations, wellness breaks, a virtual exhibitor hall, and opportunities to connect virtually with public health friends.

The 2021 Conference Brochure  is now available and will be updated as new information becomes available.

The conference will take place virtually through the MapDynamics event app. The MapDynamics app offers a fully-contained digital event venue that makes it fun to participate and easy to find the session, speaker, vendor, sponsor, or attendee you’re looking for. Please view our FAQ’s for all your answers on how to use and access Map Dynamics!

Attendees will be able to access the exhibit hall, poster session videos and all conference content through the MapDynamics platform. All sessions will be presented live via Zoom, unless noted. Prior to the conference, attendees will receive log-in credentials for the secured side of the app, which will include Zoom links.
