Nancy H. Allen, NCHSE Communications Committee Chair, November 2016
The 2016 National Health Science Curriculum Conference provided inspiration to support the work of health science teachers, other educators, and National Consortium for Health Science Education (NCHSE) partners. The Marriott Downtown Louisville, Kentucky served as the host hotel for the event, October 12-14. Over 325 attendees joined together to break barriers for health and education and build bridges to create an effective health science pathway for students interested in health professions. The conference served to advance health science education curriculum and prepare students to be college and career ready. Teachers, administrators, state health science leaders and health professionals from across the country delivered workshops to showcase their programs and best practices, communicate their innovative teaching strategies and connect with other health science educators to enhance health science programming.
