Past President's Session: Take 2 - Population + Public Health, Reunited
Monday, November 2, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Take 2 has been designed to continue the discussions that were started last year at the APHA President's Session. This session will address lessons learned, specific public health challenges and opportunities, with a focus on creating health equity and rebuilding public health infrastructure that has been marginalized over the past decade. State health officers and other leaders in state and local health departments have a key role in helping to initiate and sustain change to ensure development of an integrated system where public health, population health, and health care can successfully merge. During this session, panelists will describe their experiences working both in health care systems, and as state health officials. Panelists will describe how the challenges and opportunities for systems transformation link to APHA’s vision for Creating the Healthiest Nation in One Generation.
Session Objectives: Identify three strategies to overcome resistance to systems change in integrating population health with clinical healthcare.
Describe four competencies that are required to support transformational change within public health.
