Learn More About the Conference Tracks

Population Health and Health Systems

The role of public health departments has traditionally been to develop, create and enhance conditions to improve and support the health of all people of all communities. This was done by promoting conditions in communities that support healthier lifestyles, detecting and responding to outbreaks of diseases, protecting community members from vaccine preventable diseases and playing a role in the provision of essential public health services. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the increasing need for health care system and public health transformation. It requires public health officials, payers, providers, insurers and patients work together to improve community and population health. This track will examine the links between innovation and quality improvement in health systems and public health and explore emerging methods of capturing data and transforming it into information usable in advancing public health and delivering population health. Topics include:
  • Strategies to promote health equity and challenging social determinants of health for various populations (e.g., age, race, LGBTQI)
  • Identifying quality and evidence-based approaches to population health
  • Implementing evidence-based programs in public health, clinical practice and community settings
  • Innovative efforts to transform public health departments
  • Working with governmental bodies to effect legislative and regulatory changes
  • Effecting change within governmental bodies as a staff member of advisor
  • Writing position pieces to advocate for prevention and population health
  • Support for public health efforts, at community, local, state and federal levels
  • Discussing the role of “big data” to transform care, including innovative change management and technical applications that support and drive policy goals while reducing provider burden

Future of Preventive Medicine Workforce

This track will assess the future of our profession/specialty and will features sessions highlighting emerging opportunities in preventive medicine, discussing emerging trends and changes and presenting unmet needs and challenges. In addition, this track will include sessions on career development and advancement and will examine the various opportunities provided by our profession. Topics include:

  • Role of preventive medicine in supporting public health workforce development
  • Skills-building workshops (e.g., negotiation skills, social media writing, developing poster presentations, communications and advocacy skills)

Research, Evidence and Translation

This track will present research and address the links among research and new evidence driving policy and public health practice, practice changes informed by policy and awareness/avoidance of policies’ unintended consequences. Governmental public health agencies, academic institutions, health delivery systems, employers and others are among those promoting healthy populations through research, data analysis, survey generation, the application of epidemiological and biostatistical principles, and the evaluation of evidence that drives health policy for health promotion, health protection and disease prevention. Topics will cover a wide range of preventive medicine issues including:
  • Understanding the uses of implementation science
  • Applying research- and practice-based evidence to clinical practice or public policy
  • Strategizing messaging techniques for new research dissemination
  • Reviewing how Healthy People 2030 and related initiatives are “moving the needle” and improving outcomes
  • Using large data sets such as NHANES, BRFSS, chronic disease surveys, vital statistics, demography rates and other metrics for disease prevention, control and surveillance
  • Writing scholarly manuscripts for scientific publication
  • Funding for prevention and public health research
  • Applying genomics, precision medicine and precision public health to advance prevention

Clinical and Lifestyle Medicine

Clinical preventive medicine is increasingly important as we move from fee-for-service to value-based care. This track will cover clinical preventive medicine in various settings, including preventive medicine clinics, lifestyle medicine practices and occupational wellness clinics. This track will examine the emerging science and delivery of clinical preventive medicine and lifestyle medicine and how they have been used as a catalyst for health system transformation. Topics include:
  • Addressing core issues facing the general public, preventive medicine professionals and health systems
  • Implementing residency program curriculum
