Extend your PHSA Conference experience by attending one of our pre-conference sessions!

Each year the PHSA Conference Planning Committee organizes a number of pre-conference sessions. The goal of a pre-conference session is to provide attendees with a longer (approximately 4 – 7 hours), more in-depth opportunity to explore content beyond what can be done in a typical 1.5 or 3 hour conference workshop. Pre-conference sessions take place the day before the opening day of our Annual Conference at the same location and target subject matter  that the PA Head Start/Early Head Start community has indicated is particularly relevant to their work.
