John Finnegan Jr., PhD , School of Public Health, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN
Public health is about interdisciplinary, interprofessional, collaborative research partnerships.  In the new environment requiring both public health and healthcare to have shared responsibility for population health outcomes, we must think of a strategy of abundance rather than taking a siloed approach.  And the only way you can get strategies of abundance is if medicine, public health, and all of the health sciences leverage one another. It can’t be about our little empires and our fiefdoms. It must be about improving human health.

Learning Areas:

Basic medical science applied in public health
Implementation of health education strategies, interventions and programs
Other professions or practice related to public health
Provision of health care to the public

Learning Objectives:
Identify at least three ways to leverage partnerships between medicine, public health, and related health sciences to advance health outcomes, and to create more effective health policies.
