Public health has been brought to the forefront of the national conscience, perhaps, more now than ever before with the global COVID-19 pandemic.
It lends even more importance to the seventh annual Lenoir-Rhyne University Symposium themed "the Future of Healthcare: The Nuts and Bolts of Sustaining Wellness."
The Northwest Area Health and Education Center is providing the symposium along with Lenoir-Rhyne University.
This year, the focus is on health care delivery in the face of COVID-19, social determinants of health, the effects of COVID-19 on health disparities and strategies for professional self-care.
It is designed to provide professional development opportunities for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, psychologists, clinical social workers, mental health counselors, practice managers, health educators and anyone else who is interested.
The symposium this year takes place over live webinar during a four-day period in March:
- Wednesday, March 3
- Friday, March 5
- Wednesday, March 10
- Friday, March 12
- Each day of the symposium will feature a morning session from 10-11 a.m. and an afternoon session from 1-2 p.m.
The cost to register is $75 per person; however, LR faculty and staff receive free admission with a coupon code. Continuing education credits are available. Those who want continuing education credits are not eligible for free registration.
