About the 2019 SCHA Conference

Take two of the world's top teaching and research universities (Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill); one of our country's best and oldest Historically Black College and Universities (NC Central); a Research Triangle Park rivaling the Silicon Valley in health- and tech-related global initiatives; scores of medical and specialty centers; and a region teaming with industry-leading physicians, biomedical scientists, engineers, and visionaries and you've got a prescription for advances that are changing the face of medical care, health policy, and public health. College health centers operating in our region reap the benefits of operating in such a thriving and dynamic environment and must provide high quality, evidence-based health care and promotion in a region where the standards and expectations are set extraordinarily high.

Join us for an exploration and celebration of leading-edge clinical expertise and best practice in health care & promotion delivery and operations.
