A word on the Bureau of Women, Infant and Adolescent Health (BWIAH) Provider Meeting

In a few short weeks, NYSDOH will welcome CAPP and PREP providers to Albany for our Bureau-wide two-day provider meeting. It is a great opportunity to hear about emerging public health topics related to priority areas of healthy interpersonal relationships, healthy birth outcomes, and improved pregnancy intention. You will hear from several excellent keynote speakers and attend relevant workshops that can enhance the great work that you do. At the conference, you will connect and exchange ideas with CAPP/PREP providers, other BWIAH provider groups, as well as your DOH program staff and your ACT for Youth team members.

Who should attend?

Attendance is limited to two participants per program. For CAPP and PREP, both Health Educator Supervisors and Health Educators are eligible to participate. We expect that at least one Health Educator Supervisor from each CAPP and PREP program will join us. Many of the workshops are specifically designed for staff that work directly with their program participants.

What does it cost?

The cost is $116 per attendee. Your registration fee will cover continental breakfast and lunch on May 22-23 and an evening reception on May 22.

**Note that no outside food will be allowed at this meeting and there will be presentations during lunch each day.

You are responsible for event registration, hotel, and travel expenses, all of which should have been included in your CAPP or PREP budget.

How do we register?

Register on the event website. For planning purposes, we’ll ask you to select the workshops you wish to attend. You’ll find descriptions of the workshops as well as keynote presentations on the site.

Room blocks have been secured at several Albany hotels. We recommend that you reserve your rooms and register for the event soon as each hotel has an early deadline for the discounted rate.

More information is available on the registration link; if you have any questions about the conference please contact your NYSDOH program liaison or me. We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event!
