Tell Us How We're Doing



Health Education Administration coordinates the Department of Public Health's Speakers' Bureau. We are able to facilitate requests for speakers on the topics listed below and Hands Only CPR Training. Please note: Hands Only CPR Training is NOT a certified course; participants will NOT receive a CPR card. The training is designed to take about 10 minutes to train a small group of people. To request a presentation, fill out the form below:

**ATTENTION** Due to the current Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we can only offer virtual presentations (e.g. webinar, conference call) at this time.

Request Presentations are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis. Submitting a request doesn't guarantee a presenter can attend your event. However, submitting three weeks or more in advance will improve our ability to accommodate your needs. You'll receive an e-mail or phone call accepting or declining your invitation within 7-10 business days of submitting the request. You'll also receive a confirmation number for request tracking purposes.

IMPORTANT: All Speakers’ Bureau presentations have been prepared for general community audiences unless otherwise noted below. If you require a presentation that’s intended for health professionals and other clinical audiences, please make a note of this in the comments section of the request form and provide specific information about the audience type you’d like us to serve through the presentation. Once again, submitting a request does not guarantee a presenter can attend your event.
