The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) conducted an independent assessment of Healthy People (HP) to address evolving national public health priorities. ODPHP begin a two-phased approach to develop a new framework for HP 2020 that included cross-cutting public health priorities that integrate determinants of health, diseases and disorders; along with Health IT, Preparedness, and Prevention. Phase I focused on the framework including goals, mission, and vision along with a graphic conceptual model. Phase II is focused on the development of objectives, baselines, targets, and implementation strategies and tentatively scheduled for release in the January of 2010. One key challenge from previous iterations of HP was the lack of implementation strategies and technical assistance available for users. This session will focus on how key users incorporated Healthy People in the past and how these national objectives influenced research, program planning and policy development at the local, state and federal level.

The speakers will describe the HP2010 framework and how it was used to promote oral health. The first presentation highlights the process ODPHP used to develop an implementation plan and the proposed strategies for users. HP users from state and local perspectives will describe the challenges of promoting and developing oral health research and programs. Collectively, these presentations will discuss their experiences and explain how HP impacts these programs. In addition, speakers will discuss how the HP 2020 initiative can be used to make oral health a priority and to help integrate it with general health.

Learning Objectives:
Describe the national implementation plan for HP 2020. Discuss how HP2010 has been used in national, state and local research and programs. Discuss how state and local Healthy People users will implement the HP 2020 framework and objectives. Describe the potential impact of HP 2020 on the oral health community.
