Massachusetts Health Officers Association
50th Annual Educational Conference

The 2017 MHOA Annual Conference, being held on November 15 - 17 at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth, Massachusetts, is the largest annual public health conference in New England.  The conference provides opportunities for public health practitioners, researchers, and subject matter experts to share the latest researches, ideas, and strategies on local public health.  Attendees will learn practical and effective tools, concepts, and operational insights to better confront challenges facing many local health departments today.

MHOA represents over 600 local public health officials and associates across Massachusetts.  We serve as the leader, partner, and voice for local health departments in the Commonwealth.  Collectively, our local health departments play a critical role in ensuring health and well-being of our residents.


Every year, local public health professionals come to the MHOA Annual Conference to share ideas, to learn from experts, and to engage our state partners.  With ever dwindling resources for training and professional development, validate the investment and your public health career by attending the largest public health conference in New England.
