This one-of-a-kind, two day conference is the only conference in Southern California leading the way in promoting new cutting-edge strategies and skills to create safe and healthy communities. This conference has been created to connect all sectors with each other and with experts in healthy communities, substance abuse prevention, and innovative programs for safer and healthier neighborhoods and cities.

The 2016 National Innovative Communities Conference focuses on community and individual health as a whole. Participants will enjoy and learn from over twenty-five interactive breakout sessions covering topics from  a health pipeline to violence to substance abuse prevention.

Every year this conference focuses on a particular aspect of health, this year’s conference focus is healthy communities planning and development. With keynotes from the California Department of Transportation and the Southern California Association of Governments highlighting the planning efforts and innovations surrounding healthy cities and communities. This year’s theme is “We’re All Connected,” bringing community leaders, members, educators, providers, and health care professionals together  and connecting efforts in creating healthy and thriving communities.
