About the SCHA Conference

The University of South Carolina is proud to be the host for the 2018 Southern College Health Association Conference and to welcome everyone to Columbia, our Famously Hot city (a.k.a. Soda City). This year’s conference is held March 14-16, 2018 at the Marriott Columbia downtown.

The primary goal of the 2018 Southern College Health Association Conference is to provide innovative educational and professional development opportunities for college health professionals from a variety of disciplines. Attendees will benefit from the opportunity to share best practices, compare benchmarks, learn new techniques and technology in health care, and discuss challenges that affect the health and well-being of the college student using open forum, lecture, discussion, and debate.

The 2018 Southern College Health Association Conference invites speakers from college and university student health programs across the southeast and southwest to share their knowledge and experience with their colleagues. It provides an open forum for discussion and debate. This sharing of ideas gives attendees a chance to bring innovation back to their own health centers and improve the quality of care that is provided to their patients.

We would like to hear from you: medical providers, health educators, nurses, administrators, psychologists, pharmacists, counselors, social workers, registered dietitians, nutritionists, and all other health professionals. We are striving to offer a broad variety of continuing educational credits to meet your needs.
