Here are a few sessions to attend:

Download Conference Agenda

In 2020, Missouri had the third highest rate of gun deaths nationally. With accidental gunshots, homicides, and suicides on the rise in both urban and rural areas of Missouri, gun violence is a public health issue. The Gun Violence breakout session offers a glimpse at how gun violence interacts with mental health as well as possible solutions for both urban and rural communities. Breakout sessions include interactive participation and a Q&A session.


Understanding how health, education, and economy intersect is crucial to improving the wellbeing of communities. MU Extension's Community Health Program addresses these three pillars to improve the health and wellbeing of Missourians at every stage of life. Kathleen Quinn, Ph.D., and Chiquita Chanay, MPH, MCHES, will present a program overview and Q&A.


Though schools faced increased health care challenges throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, necessary changes are now being made. Schools working with health care organizations help improve some inequities highlighted during the pandemic. School-Based Health (SBH) Program Planning 101- details the impact of SBH programs on students' wellbeing and academic success, as well as program do's and don'ts. 


Lack of convenient transportation in rural areas often prevents patients from attending health appointments. This can result in missed medications, worsened health problems, and increased ER visits. Improving transportation in your community improves public health. Learn about HealthTran's innovative transportation solutions.


Sara Jane Tribble, host of the Kaiser Health Network's popular podcast, Where It Hurts, will close out the conference. She will examine access gaps in rural health, including hospital closures.
