Spring 2021 HOAC Semiannual Meeting

May 7, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Please join your fellow health officers for the Spring 2021 HOAC Semiannual Meeting program, “Public Health After the Pandemic.” The program will take place via Zoom on Friday, May 7, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., directly after the CCLHO and HOAC business meetings. Register for the event here.


The agenda for the activity is below. It includes two hours of CME credit and one hour of restorative content similar to the retreat HOAC presented last October. In contrast to our usual CME programs, we are limiting this activity to health officers and deputy health officers only in order to encourage free exchange of experiences during the pandemic and ideas for the future.
