January 28, 2016 - January 29, 2016

Community Health Promotion Summit – January 28 – 29, 2016 – by the Bureau of Health Promotion. Mark your calendars for the Chronic Disease Risk Reduction Program annual summit January 28 and 29, 2016, at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center in Hutchinson. Registration is now open through KS-TRAIN at http://ks.train.org , course ID# 1066674. The Bureau of Health Promotion, Kansas Department of Health and Environment is excited to announce Brian King, PhD, MPH as the keynote speaker. As the deputy director for research translation in the Office of Smoking and Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. King was a contributing author of the 50th Anniversary U.S. Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health. He has authored or co-authored more than 60 peer-reviewed scientific articles about tobacco prevention and control, and was the lead author of CDC’s 2014 evidence-based guide, Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs. Dr. King has worked for ten years to provide sound scientific evidence to inform tobacco control policy and to effectively communicate this information to key stake-holders, policy-makers, the media and the general public. A few changes of note about the 2016 event: 1) The Chronic Disease Risk Reduction (CDRR) Annual Summit is being retitled the Community Health Promotion Sum-mit. 2) The focus will be on building momentum to end the tobacco epidemic in Kansas. 3) All organizations submitting applications for SFY 2017 CDRR funding are required to attend – important information about the application will be provided. Applications are due in March 2016
