Mark your calendars for the 12th Kick the Flu Summit, on September 7, 2016, in San Diego. The summit, hosted by the San Diego Immunization Coalition, will convene medical, health and community service providers from both public and private sectors to share information, collaborate and strategize about how to promote and increase the rate of flu immunizations during the 2016-17 influenza season. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the San Diego Central Library.
This year’s summit features keynote speaker Bill Atkinson, M.D., MPH, Associate Director of Immunization Education at the Immunization Action Coalition. Formerly with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 1995 he conceived, developed and took the lead in writing Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases (aka, the “Pink Book”).
This event is aimed at health care providers and staff, public health officers and other health professionals. Registration is free, but closes September 2, or once capacity has been reached.
