Community Health Conference - Minnesota Dept. of Health

Community Health Conference

The 2020 Community Health Conference scheduled for October 7-9, 2020, Cragun's Conference Center, Brainerd, has been canceled due to COVID-19.

The conference has been an annual tradition for Minnesota’s state, tribal, local, and community public health practitioners each autumn in the Brainerd Lakes area since 1978. Although we can never virtually recreate the conference experience, we are exploring options to connect in other ways.

The State Community Health Services Advisory Committee (SCHSAC) will still meet virtually on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. However, SCHSAC will not present the Community Health Awards on that date. MDH will release more details about the 2020 Community Health Awards this summer.

The in-person Community Health Conference will return in 2021.
