The Tennessee Department of Health is hosting "Tennesseans Teaming Up for Change: Statewide Infant Mortality Summit" on September 20, 2012. at the Tennessee State University Avon Williams Campus in Nashville. We have an exciting lineup planned, featuring well-known speakers from the state and national level (see attached draft agenda). Continuing medical education (CME) credits will be available.
The overarching goal of the summit is to foster the development of teams that will go back and address community-level issues that impact women's health and birth outcomes.
This summit will be different than many other educational conferences:
How to Register
Reach out to others and identify who should be on your team. Success at improving birth outcomes and reducing infant mortality will require input from diverse team members throughout the community—so think about who you will need to include on your team in order to have maximal impact.
Registration is limited—we have space to accommodate 200 people (40-50 teams, depending on the size). Each team should identify a "lead contact" who will register on behalf of the team and serve as the main point of contact for registration materials, follow-up announcements, etc. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided for free. Because space is somewhat limited, please identify 3-5 individuals for one team, rather than sending multiple teams from one organization (otherwise we will not be able to accommodate as many teams from around the state).
The lead contact for the team should register the entire team using the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JK59LRF.
Use one registration for the entire team. Please remember that the Summit is designed for teams and you should register as a team of 3-5 people; individual registrations will not be accepted .
On September 21st, the day following the Summit, Metro Nashville Health Department will host the annual "Project Blossom" event. Click on the link below for more information and the agenda on Project Blossom. You can register for either the Summit or Project Blossom (or both) using the survey link. (Note: For Project Blossom, individual registrations are accepted—you do not have to register as a team for Project Blossom).
