The HHS Secretary's Advisory Committee on Healthy People 2020 has presented a new framework to the public health field that focuses on social and physical health determinants and interventions necessary to change them. This presentation will review this work and examine specific implications for health administrators. Clearly, a focus on health determinants will dictate the development of new partnerships and new public health practices in local communities throughout the United States. These partnerships and practices will be explored, and the role of health administrators in fostering local healthy people communities of interest will be highlighted. Implications for costs of national health care will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:
Identify major health promotion and disease prevention components of national health reform. Demonstrate the role of interventions for health determinants in improving community health. Describe new roles for health administrators in building new partnerships and introducing new community interventions that address health determinants and promote the goals of national health reform.
