Head to Toe has provided school health and behavioral health professionals with professional development for the past 27 years through our annual conference. In the spring of 2020, in response to the pandemic, we launched H2T365 to allow us to continue offering this valuable information.
Head to Toe attracts school health professionals, primarily school nurses, counselors, and social workers from New Mexico, but with the new virtual environment, our audience is expanding. Attendees range from individuals who are brand new to the field of school health to professionals with more than 20 years of experience. We seek programming that benefits all levels. When developing your presentation, keep in mind the cultural diversity of New Mexico’s students; also consider rural, frontier, and urban differences.
How H2T365 Works:
We are currently offering monthly trainings. Sessions vary in length, depending on speaker needs, and are recorded, to be uploaded at a later date for on-demand viewing. The preferred start time for the attendees is 8:00 am. Presentations are currently free of charge, and participants will earn continuing education. The program is sponsored by the New Mexico Department of Health, Office of School and Adolescent Health. We are currently accepting applications for presentations for our 2022 calendar.
Virtual Presenter Requirements:
Before you begin, read all of the guidance below on what will be requested on the application. If you plan on submitting more than one application, you will need to enter each application separately. When you are ready to apply click the button below.
Two to three paragraphs describing the content of your presentation and the types of learning activities in which participants will be engaged. Include tools, ideas, or strategies participants will take away to help them in their work, any opportunities for interaction and reflection that are part of the presentation, and any hands-on activities. Also, identify your intended outcomes for participants and how you will know if you are successful in meeting your outcomes. Workshops that give the participants skills/activities to take back to their schools will receive priority consideration. THIS IS FOR THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE TO CLEARLY UNDERSTAND YOUR PRESENTATION, SO BE COMPREHENSIVE.
A 75 – 100-word description of your session. This is NOT the same as your summary. If your proposal is selected, this description will be used to market your presentation. Make your description appealing while simultaneously giving readers a clear understanding of your presentation’s focus. Include a statement of need – why the subject matter is important – and key points you wish attendees to take away from your session. This description may be edited for length or content.
Writing Guidelines: Write out the first reference of an acronym. Do not reference the presenter’s name in the description. Use the active vs. passive tense, i.e., “The session explores …” NOT “The session will explore.”
Helpful resource: Writing Stellar Session Descriptions
Your professional background as it relates to the topic being presented. We will also need you to upload a resume or CV. If there are multiple presenters, we will need contact information and a biography for each presenter.
Please supply a headshot that can be used for marketing purposes. Submit as a .jpg, .jpeg or .png of at least 300 dpi.
Approximately 70% of our conference attendees need CEUs to maintain their licensure, and all CE credentialing boards have various submission requirements. We have tried to streamline the collection of this information as much as possible. We need THREE clearly defined objectives stated in measurable, operational, and behavioral terms that define the expected learner outcome. NOTE: You will be evaluated BY ATTENDEES on if you have achieved these objectives. Therefore it is very important that your objectives accurately reflect the presentation you provide. Important: There are keywords you should not use when writing your learning objectives.
