Please join the California Immunization Coalition at our 2018 Summit to be held at the new Kimpton Sawyer Hotel in Sacramento, California. The theme of this year’s Summit is Onward and Upward and will focus on utilizing our public health successes to engage with new partners, grow our Coalition network and educate and support our communities. For over ten years now, the CIC Summit has brought together partners and colleagues from throughout California and beyond to share ideas, highlight successes, and identify partnerships. Mark your calendar, make your travel plans, and register today to be part of the great work we do to move onward and  upward toward improved immunization rates for all Californians.

Summit Objectives Include: 

  • Provide support and technical assistance to enhance existing education, communication, and outreach efforts
  • Facilitate the sharing of successful strategies and best practices to strengthen local and statewide advocacy efforts
  • Encourage the adoption of programs for healthcare providers to promote and deliver immunizations across the lifespan.
  • Review new recommendations, issues and trends in immunizations and vaccine-preventable diseases.
