NYSCHA Annual Meeting

Each year the New York State College Health Association (NYSCHA) holds an Annual Meeting in October to help college health professionals stay abreast of current topics affecting their practice and the students on their campuses.

The annual meetings are designed for anyone interested in college health, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, clinical support staff, administrators, health educators, mental health professionals, and students. Programs addressing topics of interest to all of the disciplines in college health are offered throughout the annual meeting.

Every two years, NYSCHA and the New England College Health Association (NECHA) offer a combined annual meeting. In November 2017, NECHA will host the NECHA/NYSCHA 2017 Combined Annual Meeting in Burlington, Vermont.

NYSCHA 2016 Annual Meeting

Thank you to everyone who attended the NYSCHA 2016 Annual Meeting in October 2016 in Syracuse, New York and especially to the excellent speakers who shared their expertise and experience with us. As its theme, “Coming Together: Refresh, Reconnect, and Re-energize,” promised, the NYSCHA 2016 Annual Meeting offered the opportunity for college health professionals to share ideas, learn from each other, and explore ways to improve the care and services offered to meet the needs of our student populations. Collaboration across disciplines, within campus communities, and with college health colleagues throughout New York State helped us to refresh, renew, and re-energize our skills and ourselves.
