Arizona State University’s Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy (CABHP)  is pleased to announce the 19th Annual Summer Institute will be held July 17-20, 2018.  We’re looking toward another great year of providing education and networking opportunities to Arizona’s healthcare and behavioral health professionals. This year, we head to our new venue in Flagstaff, AZ at the High Country Conference Center, to welcome national experts, innovative local leaders, educators, researchers, clinicians, peer support specialists, counselors, outreach providers, government leaders and other professionals together for the four-day conference. Nearly 400 professionals from numerous private and State agencies attended the conference, and we look forward to seeing you and your colleagues in this year. 

The conference provides a wide variety of educational sessions for today’s healthcare and behavioral health professionals and partners. We will showcase keynotes conducted by nationally recognized researchers and experts, as well as more than 40 breakout sessions addressing a wide range of innovative topics relevant to those working in and leading the field.
