2011 Vaccine Preventable Diseases: Ensuring Immunity in Your Community
The New Jersey Center for Public Health Preparedness (NJCPHP) at the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey-School of Public Health is hosting a conference, “Vaccine Preventable Diseases: Ensuring Immunity in Your Community,” on July 18, 2011 at three-sites live and video-streamed to the locations where the speakers are not. The three sites include the Conference Center at Montclair State University, in Montclair, NJ; the Enterprise Center at Burlington County College in Mount Laurel, NJ; and University of Albany-School of Public Health in Rensselaer, NY. The conference will provide the most current training and guidelines to public health and school nurse first responders, as well as other health professionals including physicians in pediatric and family practice, health officers, health educators, and other primary care providers. The Conference seeks to emphasize the message that immunizations are essential for all age groups, including vulnerable groups such as infants, children, and the elderly, but also for healthy adults. To reduce the outbreaks and the consequences (morbidity and mortality) of recurring diseases such as pertussis, influenza, measles, polio and other communicable diseases, the conference agenda includes leaders in the public health community who will address the most recent developments and issues related to vaccine preparedness for all populations. Other important topics for health professionals, such as an update on the NJ Immunization Information System, and New York State's Statewide Immunization Information System, will also be presented.
