Policy and System Changes - Impacts and Opportunities

NACCHO, the Prevention Institute, the Public Health Institute, and Trust for America’s Health were among a core group of public health, prevention, and equity organizations that led the effort to maintain prevention and wellness in health reform legislation. The overarching strategy included a number of synergistic components. This session will include a panel of representatives from each organization to describe the elements of this joint approach. Through engagement with the audience, this panel will establish a dialogue on how to build on the gains achieved through a greater focus on prevention. The session will highlight next steps with an emphasis on leadership opportunities for local health departments.
