Registration for the 19th Annual Massachusetts Adult Immunization Conference is open!
This event, to be held May 20, 2014 at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA attracts professionals from local public health organizations, long-term-care facilities, pharmacies, college health, hospitals, physician practices, community health centers, employers, health insurance plans, vaccine manufacturers, and more. It has proven to be a valuable venue for continued learning and interaction with key immunization experts. Last year, over 300 immunization providers came together to support statewide efforts to increase adult immunization rates in Massachusetts. The conference is sponsored by the Department of Public Health, the MA Adult Immunization Coalition, and JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc.
Goal: To provide participants with the most current adult immunization information and encouraging the expansion of immunization activities in facilities, businesses and communities.
