On October 3, 2018, the Roundtable on Population Health Improvement and the Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Science (IAPHS) will hold a half-day joint symposium Population Health Science in the United States: Trends, Evidence, and Effective Policy. The symposium will

  1. Identify key trends and patterns in U.S. population health and provocative challenges to our current thinking, including socio-economic and racial/ethnic 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

The live stream will be available for playback and a written proceedings will be prepared after the symposium. 

After the symposium, the 2018 IAPHS Conference will begin. This is a separate event and registration is required to attend. Please visit https://iaphs.org/conference/ to learn more and to register for the conference.
