ASPPH Sponsored Roundtables on Population Health Held in Atlanta and Nashville

The ASPPH Population Health Leadership Group organized two additional discussion roundtables this week on population health improvement. The sessions in Atlanta (4/3) and Nashville (4/4) each brought together more than two dozen public health leaders, health care executives, physician leaders, community leaders, CDC staff, 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. Earlier this year, similar roundtables were held in Des Moines (2/22) and Minneapolis (2/23).

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 roundtable discussions will be published in June or July.  The project was also the subject of a concurrent session at the ASPPH Annual Meeting in March.
