Spring Conference


The Conference Program is now available.

Pre-registration is closed.

Onsite Registration will be available throughout the conference.


As our nation's health care system shifts to embrace a population health focus, community-based programs like Healthy Start are being recognized for the important role they play in engaging fragile families living in vulnerable communities. This move from volume to value, which includes achieving health equity, eliminating health disparities, and addressing social determinants, must become a shared mission with every aspect of our system of care working in concert to achieve positive outcomes. The National Healthy Start Association's 16th Annual Spring Conference will define strategies and opportunities for its members and their partners to prosper in this emerging environment.

Please email conference@nationalhealthystart.org with questions.
