Setting Sail for the Future of Occupational Health in Healthcare

The coronavirus pandemic has changed so many things about the world in which we live. I would venture to say, that for most of us working in the field of occupational health in healthcare, this has been the most challenging year of our careers. Navigating the pandemic with all the unknowns, keeping up with the daily and sometimes hourly changes in recommendations, attempting to ensure that healthcare workers in our facilities were adequately protected, managing employee exposures and infections – these are just a few examples of the things that pushed us far past our perceived limits.

Despite all of its challenges, the pandemic provided occupational health professionals the opportunity to shine, to utilize our knowledge and skill to benefit the employees in our care, and to be a valuable resource and team member as our healthcare systems faced unprecedented issues. AOHP plays a significant role in helping its members prepare for such challenges with a variety of valuable resources.

One of the most significant resources is the AOHP National Conference, which is held each year in September. Although the pandemic prevented us from meeting in person for the 2020 conference, we are eagerly anticipating the possibility of meeting together again September 8-11 at the San Diego Mission Bay Resort in beautiful San Diego, California! Start planning now to attend this exceptional event at this spectacular venue.

The Conference’s agenda offers quality educational opportunities for every attendee, whether novice or well-seasoned. Attending an AOHP National Conference is truly a rewarding and worthwhile investment. In addition to the educational sessions, there are many opportunities for networking and establishing connections that will become a vital part of your everyday practice.

We would love to see you and many new faces in San Diego in September!
