Professional conferences are a great way to learn, share ideas and network. E.g., The 2011 Global Family Health Conference at Brigham Young University:http://ce.byu.edu/cw/gfh/. Check with your local or regional universities and colleges for similar opportunities.
Though this may be counterintuitive, professional conferences can be fun! Ok, not drinking beer and yelling at the TV Super Bowl fun. The kind that reminds you of why you chose to focus on helping families and the excitement of working towards something that can make a real difference. If you are interested in public health, see what local or regional conferences you can attend to explore opportunities and feel the positive energy.
