Sponsors: American Public Health Association (APHA), Prevention Institute (PI), Public Health Institute (PHI), Trust for America's Health (TFAH)
All Americans should have a high level of services and community infrastructure that protect, promote, and preserve their health and well-being; and every community should be prepared for emerging and ongoing threats. Achieving this vision requires strategies that prioritize value-based health care and sustained investments in proven prevention and public health activities tailored to meet community health needs and preferences. This Dialogue4Health Web Forum features a panel discussion with national public health leaders highlighting policy priorities for advancing prevention and wellness with the Administration and Congress. This Web Forum will also showcase the importance of leadership both in public health and across multiple sectors to integrate health care, behavioral health, social services, environmental health, and transportation. The panelists will address attendees’ questions in the Q&A session. Presenters:
Georges Benjamin, MD, Executive Director, American Public Health Association
Larry Cohen, MSW, Executive Director, Prevention Institute
Mary Pittman, DrPH, President and CEO, Public Health Institute
John Auerbach, President and CEO, Trust for America’s Health
