North Pacific Pediatrics Society (NPPS) 200th Conference on October 2-3 at Sleeping Lady in Leavenworth
For those of you who would like to plan a trip to a beautiful destination, get some quality CME and hang out with pediatric colleagues in person, then I want to encourage you to plan a weekend at Sleeping Lady in Leavenworth for October 2-3 weekend; we have some great speakers already lined up! We are anticipating a return to in-person conferences in a more vaccinated world, and of course, we will be working with the resort to make sure things are aligned with public health guidelines. This will happen to be our 200th Conference and a celebration of NPPS turning 100 years old! Please be aware that Oktoberfest has been officially canceled this year in Leavenworth, however on the bright side things will be a bit less crazy in the area for those looking for a nice retreat and some great food and socializing. Below are links for:

Sleeping Lady – recommend calling to book a room as part of the NPPS room block
For those who are not familiar, the core mission of NPPS has been to provide a CME experience with a focus on outstanding (and often entertaining) speakers with teaching geared toward primary care pediatricians. Presentations often have pearls to be used right away when you return to the clinic as well as themes that transcend clinical pediatrics. We are dedicated to the social experience of in-person learning, providing opportunities for Q&A and engagement with our speakers and fellow attendees. We try to select venues that provide great access to Pacific Northwest destinations while striving to provide great CME value overall. Although nothing beats the cost of free CME or the convenience of not having to leave home, aren’t you looking forward to planning a trip right now? Sleeping Lady is just 2-2.5 hours away by car with great accommodations. For those musically inclined, there are even performance spaces for you to practice on the grounds; for those who just want to relax and have some good food and drink, easy-peasy.
Some additional information:
CME schedule is Saturday morning and early afternoon and Sunday morning. Breakfasts and Saturday lunch are included with registration for attendees.
We are still finalizing the schedule and specific topics; however confirmed speakers include:

THE 2021 COD & TREATMENT CONFERENCE IS VIRTUAL!
As COVID-19 remains a national health concern, and in an effort to ensure the health, safety, and comfort of all attendees, the Co-Occurring Disorders and Treatment Conference scheduled for October 4-5, 2021, will not take place in person but will be offered in a virtual format. We will miss seeing you in person this year!
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
With each conference we continue to strive to bring together experts from Washington and across the nation to share information about innovative therapeutic techniques, skills, programs, practices and policies that offer a relevant and enjoyable learning experience.
Our goal is to promote integration of services across the public mental health, substance use disorder, developmental disabilities, and medical systems; promote knowledge about co-occurring disorders and the value of integration, to support the development of a co-occurring capable system of care, and to advocate and partner with others to promote integrated treatment and recovery for all people. Finally, we strive to present each participant with current information that will bring value back to the agency and the patients they serve, and to provide a great opportunity to network with friends and colleagues
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THE CONFERENCE?
Professionals from behavioral health, developmental disabilities, adult and youth corrections, and physical health come together to share current information on COD and treatment. The COD & Treatment Conference is open to everyone interested in behavioral health, developmental disabilities, adult and youth corrections, and physical health.
Early Bird Registration (on or before July 23, 2021): $100
Regular Registration (after July 23, 2021): $125

Edge of Amazing is a conference dedicated to connecting, educating and inspiring health and well-being advocates in the Greater Northwest Area and beyond.
Edge of Amazing brings people together to learn new research and trends, amplify efforts, and increase the positive impact we can make together in improving the most pressing health needs and public health issues that impact the health and well-being of our community. Join us for the Seventh Annual Edge of Amazing – a virtual event you won’t want to miss!
What people are saying.
“I have participated in the Edge of Amazing every year since its inception and have gained new insights each year; insights that have informed and enhanced collaborative efforts with many, many partners to make Snohomish County a safer, healthier community for everyone who lives here.”
Mary Jane (MJ) Brell Vujovic, Director Snohomish County Human Services
“I view Edge of Amazing as strengthening our community’s efforts to affect positive change; by viewing health as underpinned by a set of interwoven factors rather than a single data point, service providers throughout our region are better equipped to align resources and better support the individual. Every year, this event reminds me of how powerful Snohomish County truly is.”
Cameron Cassidy, Director, Professional Services Workforce Snohomish
About Providence Institute for a Healthier Community.
We’re Creating Healthier Communities Together.Edge of Amazing is an initiative of Providence Institute for a Healthier Community. PIHC aims to create healthier communities by focusing on whole-person health.
More than 60% of well-being is determined by social and economic factors like food security, housing and jobs. Rather than invest in clinical care alone, we’re working towards a more holistic and equitable approach, where local systems and services better support all dimensions of well-being for every community member.
HOW WE WORK
Listen to the Community
Health and well-being mean different things in different communities. We don’t tell communities what it means to be healthy, we ask them. Through community research, we identify the dimensions of well-being that matter to the communities we serve, then help them create pathways to address holes in health systems.
Social and medical professionals are often siloed, making it difficult for professionals to work together to address every dimension of an individual’s health. We create systems and forums that help medical and social care providers work together to address whole-person health.
Harness Community Power
We have everything we need to thrive within our communities, but some resources are under- or over-utilized. We’re working behind the scenes, collecting data and making connections that ultimately create more capacity to meet community needs.
