Open Talks Health Conference is a component of our community health education initiative to provide year-round comprehensive health care training for clinicians, patients and consumers. Held annually in the fall, the conference will provide CE approved sessions for nurses, social workers, counselors, students and other health care professionals on various disease states affecting the residents of Baton Rouge.
2017 Theme: Adolescent Healthcare
We believe addressing adolescent healthcare needs is essential to promoting healthier behaviors into adulthood, thereby bridging the gap between pediatric and adult primary care. The conference goal is to increase the knowledge of current adolescent health issues, youth clinical practices, current legal rights, and culturally appropriate health promotion and prevention in an effort to provide better quality service to our community's youth.
We invite nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, counselors, student and health care professionals to attend this one-day event on Friday, October 27, 2017 at Crown Plaza Executive Center in Baton Rouge.
Online registration for Open Talks is available via the link below. If you have questions, please contact our Development Director, Lori Lauve at email@example.com or (225) 424-1772.
