2022 USPHS Scientific and Training Symposium

Description

The 2022 USPHS Scientific and Training Symposium provides continuing education workshops and presentations for more than 1,000 officers of the U.S. Public Health Service and other public health workers on a range of relevant topics. This will be the 55th annual conference and is the only one of its kind. The theme for this year's conference is "Public Health: Preparing for the Future." This theme is meant to convey three key elements: We are forward looking, learning from the past, and incorporating the lessons we have learned to improve the health of the people we serve. We acknowledge that the extraordinary value of the Commissioned Corps of the US Public Health Service is not adequately appreciated and recognized by either key decision-makers or the public and going forward, we are committed to changing that. We respect and are grateful for the service of active-duty USPHS commissioned officers who have given so much, not just during the pandemic but throughout the history of the Corps, and we know that meeting the needs of those officers and their families is the best way to ensure the future of the Corps and its contributions to public health.
