25th Annual Midwest Child Life Conference

You're invited! Join us for the 25th Annual Midwest Child Life Conference hosted by the UnityPoint Health Child Life Services Team and UnityPoint Health – Central Illinois Foundation. For the first time ever offering both Professional Development Units for Child Life Specialists AND Continuing Education Credits for Registered Nurses.

Due to state mandates and the national increase in COVID-19 cases, the 25th Annual Midwest Child Life Conference hosted by the UnityPoint Health Child Life Services Team and UnityPoint Health – Central Illinois Foundation will be going VIRTUAL. We made this decision with careful consideration. Ultimately the health and safety of our event registrants, presenters, and sponsors must remain our top priority. 

Here's what you need to know:

  • The event will still be the weekend of October 2nd.
  • An updated conference schedule will be available on the conference webpage soon
  • Registrants for the virtual conference will receive a link and instructions for accessing sessions before the event.
  • Registration will remain open for the virtual conference, and the conference fee will remain $150.00.
  • Please get in touch with the Par-A-Dice Hotel / Casino separately to cancel any previously made lodging reservations.

Questions? Contact Chad Cunningham at Chad.Cunningham@unitypoint.org or 309-672-5745.
