Symposium – Population Health Science in the United States: Trends, Evidence, and Effective Policy

Please join the National Academies’ Roundtable on Population Health Improvement and the Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Sciences (IAPHS) at the National Academy of Sciences on the morning of October 3rd for a joint symposium and kick-off to the IAPHS Conference.

This free, half-day, public symposium will seek to

  1. Identify key trends and patterns in U.S. population health and provocative challenges to our current thinking, including socio-economic, gender, racial/ethnic and other social disparities
  2. Explore how population health science can inform policy to improve outcomes and how policies can have unintended consequences if not grounded in research and evaluation
  3. Showcase perspectives on how we build common ground for development and implementation of effective policy based on science

Visit our registration page to sign up for the symposium or the live webcast and meeting page for more information (additional resources will be posted before the symposium).
