Event Details

The National Conference on Immunization Coalitions provides data and validation for participants of coalitions to bring back and use as justification for implementing new projects and programs. The conference supplies participants with examples of successful field tested programs, which can be implemented within their own communities, in addition to the valuable opportunity to develop professional contacts with those that have designed and implemented these programs.

 

 The National Conference on Immunization Coalitions Objectives are to:

 

  • Provide training on how to create, lead and sustain effective local or state coalitions and partnerships that address childhood, adolescent, and adult immunizations.
  • Offer strategies for grassroots organizing.
  • Educate participants on how coalitions serve as agents for social change.
  • Provide educational sessions on using data to drive coalition decision making and activities.
  • Improve knowledge of ways to work with culturally and linguistically diverse populations and reduce disparities in coverage.
  • Teach participants to use media effectively to communicate key immunization messages.
  • Present models of coalition activities that increase community awarenessa nd immunization rates.
  • Demonstrate effective methods of evaluation of coalition activities.
  • Teach participants how to advocate effectively for legislative change.
  • Build participant skills on how to identify and resolve conflicts among coalition partners.
  • Increased participant's knowledge of resources available to coalitions, including fundraising and sources of funding for immunization efforts.
