ASPPH Sponsored Roundtable on Population Health Held in Des Moines and Minneapolis

The ASPPH Population Health Leadership Group organized two discussion round tables this week on population health improvement. The sessions in Des Moines (2/22) and Minneapolis (2/23) each brought together more than two dozen public health leaders, health care executives, physician leaders, and business leaders in a full day of frank discussions. The sessions were organized to identify potential new and expanded roles for ASPPH members in the field of population health improvement. The sessions were informed by foundational insights gathered through a population health survey conducted by ASPPH last fall, as well as by more than a dozen key informant interviews.

The discussions at each roundtable were organized around four major trends in population health improvement:

The results of the ASPPH survey on population health, and summaries of the structured interviews and round table discussions will be the focus of a session at the ASPPH Annual Meeting and will be published in June.
