2019 Annual Conference


2019 Annual Meeting | June 17th - 18th | The California Endowment, Sacramento, CA

This year is all about leadership! We have speakers on topics ranging from motivating a group to resolving conflicts. One of the best parts of this small, intimate conference is meeting other public health nutritionists, and sharing stories about what we are all working on.

CCLHDN's Annual Conference is on Monday and Tuesday, June 17 and 18, in Sacramento.  We have a block of rooms reserved at The Sheraton in downtown Sacramento.
