The intended audience for the HIA Practitioner Workshop is current practitioners of Health Impact Assessment (HIA) who are interested in strategic HIA field-building. The 2016 Workshop welcomes participation from practitioners worldwide.
HIA practitioners interested in attending should:
1. Have direct experience in conducting HIA, or currently be involved in conducting their first HIA.
2. Be willing to join Working Groups (WGs) committed to conducting field-building activities at the workshop, and after the meeting via email and phone calls.
To register, please complete the following questions and submit this form. The Planning Committee (PC) will review all registration requests to verify the applicant’s direct HIA experience and commitment to field building. To promote robust conversation representing diverse perspectives of practice, the PC seeks to balance the attendee portfolio across geographies and organizations, and increase attendance from community-based organizations, community members, vulnerable populations, and practitioners from outside of North America.
Due to limited space, we can only accommodate 100 participants. We may not be able to accommodate registration requests for more than three individuals per organization. Please contact us if you are interested in registering more than three individuals from your organization.
Registration forms will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Within a few weeks, you will be contacted with instructions about how to proceed to confirm your attendance. Information lodging and travel will be provided at that time. Registration fee information can be found on the SOPHIA website (http://hiasociety.org/?page_id=833).
The deadline to register is Monday, February 1, 2016.
