The 2021 KPHA Conference theme is Strengthening Social Connectedness. Keynote presentations will focus on the strengthening of public health practitioners and social connectedness practices. Conference sessions will serve as a forum to exchange best practices and share knowledge about existing and emerging public health issues. Participants will gain valuable professional development that improves public health at a local, state, regional, and national level. KPHA members will have the opportunity to look ahead, network and explore current and future public health challenges.
