The second annual CNFL HIMSS Women In Health IT Conference sold out. Phenomenal speakers and topics relevant to current and future Women in Health IT combined to create the perfect recipe for success. 

It was great to meet so many of our members from all over the state of Florida.


As local and state level governmental health departments modernize their health and human services systems and shift business processes towards a Public Health 3.0 future1, and state and local health leaders will need to consider how to adopt enhanced data analytics, improved surveillance among other novel uses of health information to inform policy making and drive innovative strategies to combat a range of complex local to global health and human services issues.

As a chapter board member you can help make a difference through mentorship, advocacy or by growing our membership and helping to develop educational programs. 

We have a few chair positions and committee member positions open for our Advocacy Committee, Scholarship Committee and others.  By getting involved, you can help advance the mission of HIMSS across Central and North Florida.
