In March 2011, the US Army Public Health Command (USAPHC), formerly US Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine (USACHPPM),
and the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) joined together to host the 1st Armed Forces Public Health Conference. In previous years,
USAPHC hosted the Force Health Protection Conference, which was the largest public health conference conducted within the Army Medical Department with
attendance by professionals from the Army, Air Force, Navy, Public Health Service, Veteran’s Administration, academia, non-government organizations, and foreign
military medical services. Similarly, NMCPHC had sponsored the annual Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Conference. In 2011, the two conferences were
combined into the Armed Forces Public Health Conference. The meeting was held in Hampton, VA with the theme of “Public Health in a Joint Environment”.
Starting annually in 2004, the Deployment Health Clinical Center has sponsored a Deployment Healthcare
Track within the Force Health Protection Conference. The primary objective of the Deployment Healthcare Track
is to disseminate cutting edge research and information to enhance post-deployment healthcare for Service
members and their families. We especially want to encourage primary care providers. physician assistants and
nurses who are the first line of healthcare assistance for returning combat veterans and families to attend
and/or present at this Conference.
