2017 PCSC Conference Postponed Due to Hurricane Irma

2017 Palmetto Coordinated System of Care “Building the Case for Evidence-Based Interventions” Conference Postponed Due to Hurricane Irma

Due to the anticipated impact of the unprecedented storm system Hurricane Irma, the SCDHHS and the System of Care Team decided to cancel the two-day event scheduled for Sept. 13 and 14 at the Columbia Conference Center. While there was disappointment not to hold the event as publicized, the primary concern was the safety of conference speakers, participants, contracted vendors and the public at large.

Rest assured, the educational objectives of the conference will be met in the future. Staff is looking at opportunities to reschedule or pursue a virtual conference so that we continue to educate policy leaders, funders and providers about increasing access to evidence-based interventions for youth with significant behavioral health needs. Conference registrants will be notified by email within the next four weeks regarding plans to reschedule the conference. If you were not previously registered and would like to receive information about the conference please email Robin.Carter@scdhhs.gov.

Thank you for understanding these challenging circumstances, and for your continued thoughts of concern and hopefulness for those impacted by the storm.
