HealthNets Conference

Partnerships for Health.

The HealthNets conference is a professional development event that promotes the exchange of ideas in teaching and research among health educators assisting our new and seasoned health educators to stay current and innovative in their practices. 

HealthNets was started in the fall of 1997 by Dr. Monica Homer and Professor Mary Barrese as an informal gathering of health educators at the local, state and national level to discuss teaching strategies, skill based education, comprehensive health education and explore advances in health studies. After four years of small meetings, it was decided to provide an annual conference which meets professional development needs for in service health educators and CHES/MCHES participants.

HealthNets will host two identical conferences to be run more like a workshop at the Garden City Campus. A third will be added if health educators were closed out of the first two conferences.  We will focus strictly on the New York state mandate for Sexuality and assist health educators with creating skill based sexuality units. There is a 45 person cap on each date, and registration is first come first serve.
