Submission Portal:
All proposals must be submitted through the NHSDC Proposal Submission form located here: Proposal Submission Form .

Proposal Guidance:
In keeping with this year’s theme, “Resilience and Reinvention: Planning for a Brighter Future,” NHSDC is looking for session proposals that address the ongoing and emerging needs of communities as they begin to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

NHSDC Conference attendees will benefit most from presentations that tell a community’s story of using data and systems to impact change across the spectrum of its needs – homelessness, healthcare, public health, justice system involvement, food insecurity, employment and other challenges introduced, or exacerbated, by COVID-19.

Proposers are encouraged to explore our Conference Archive to learn more about themes and content from earlier conferences.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

NHSDC has issued a new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) statement that underscores our commitment to using data to impact policy, improve human services and drive systems change. We are now asking that all presentations, where possible, include data that has been disaggregated by race. Please consider this when brainstorming ideas for session proposals.
