3322.0 Making Science Work for Communities

Monday, October 31, 2011: 2:30 PM
This invited session sponsored by the APHA Science Board will highlight the need for both scientific evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence in improving the health of communities. This is especially true for eliminating health disparities and addressing the social determinants of health effectively. Presentations include an update of the Guide to Community Preventive Services, addressing challenges in providing evidence for public health practice, and examples of how evidence is used by state and local public health agencies in improving community health.
Session Objectives: 1. Demonstrate the intersection between scientific evidence-based practice & practice-based evidence. 2. Identify the components and utility of applying the Community Guide in a practice-based setting.
