With more and more people enrolling in Medicaid, Medicare, and state and county health plans every year, the field of public health is growing rapidly – and with its growth has come a tremendous demand for skilled professionals keeping abreast of the sociopolitical, financial, and technological changes public health is experiencing.

As with many professions, the field of public health requires professionals to consistently keep themselves up to date on important developments in every aspect of the field – from medical advances to new laws. Here are five must-attend public health conferences taking place in 2018.

1. Global Conference on Addiction and Behavioral Health

Organized by the Magnus Group, Global Conference on Addiction and Behavioral Health seeks to explore, in-depth, the doctor-patient approach to addiction and to explore and implement behavioral and psychological practices in order to treat and combat the prevalence of addiction. With the opioid crisis looming large in the United States, this conference represents yet another milestone in guiding the nation towards treating addiction more successfully – via medicine rather than law enforcement. This conference will take place in Las Vegas in October 2018.

2. ECCO2018: European Cancer Summit

Cancer treatments have improved significantly in the last decade, but cancers of all kinds continue to pose a significant threat to the health of the population – especially after the consideration of environmental and sanitation concerns. This multi-faceted conference will focus on discussion and debate of new ideas and policies, implementing new clinical discoveries into standard practice, and drafting new public policies to reduce and prevent the prevalence of cancers of all kinds. The conference will take place in Vienna in September 2018.

3. 15th World Neonatal Healthcare Conference

With infant mortality still remarkably high in the west, 15th World Neonatal Healthcare Conference seeks to bring a wide variety of maternity professionals together to create and implement new medical innovations, ideas, and procedures that can improve infant and mother health and reduce infant mortality. Featuring workshops, symposiums, and keynote sessions, the conference will focus on a broad variety of neonatal issues including nutrition, childbirth complications, infections, surgical procedures, and much more. The 15th World Neonatal Healthcare Conference will take place in Toronto, Ontario in October 2018.

4. International Conference on Vaccines and Immunology

The field of vaccines and immunology has continued to develop in spite of sociopolitical complications to its progress, particularly in the west. The International Conference on Vaccines and Immunology will feature an extensive discussion on new innovations and discoveries in immunology and vaccine delivery, and implementation of new practices to boost immunizations to infectious and fatal diseases and save more lives as a result. The conference will also feature discussions on specialized areas of immunology, such as veterinary vaccines, neonatal vaccination, and bacterial and viral vaccines. The conference will take place in Tokyo, Japan in April 2018.

5. 6th International Conference on Sustainable Development

A truly multidisciplinary conference, the 6th International Conference on Sustainable Development will address the development of a number of fields – including public health – and developing those fields sustainably from economic, cultural, and environmental viewpoints. The conference will take place in Rome, Italy in September 2018.

No matter what area of public health you work or study in, each of these conferences represents a unique opportunity to learn, grow, and interact with a wide variety of experts in their field – and to work towards changing the face of public health as we know it.
