IAPHS Partners

IAPHS is proud to partner with the following organizations:

Dear Pandemic's Nerdy Girls

Dear Pandemic is a COVID-19 social media campaign providing curated, comprehensive, and timely information about COVID-19. Run by “Those Nerdy Girls,” an all-female, interdisciplinary team of population health scientists, Dear Pandemic educates and empowers individuals to successfully navigate the overwhelming amount of information circulating during the pandemic. Its strategic partnership with IAPHS links Dear Pandemic to the scientific organization most closely associated with population health, and helps it to better define and promote the role of population health science in the emerging sub-discipline of infodemiology through collaboration and information exchange between the two organizations.  In turn, Dear Pandemic provides IAPHS with the opportunity to both embrace, and learn from, its efforts to design innovative social media vehicles that advance the practical communication of population health science.  Read the story of Dear Pandemic here.

Population Health Leaders in Academic Medicine

The Population Health Leaders in Academic Medicine (PHLAM) Working Group seeks to bring together leaders of academic population health entities (e.g., departments, institutes) to provide a platform for strengthening and sustaining the growing field of population health science. Initially focusing on Academic population health entities within schools of medicine and population health, the group aims in the future to expand to academic units housed in schools and departments of public health, social science and related fields.

Scholar Strategy Network

The Scholar Strategy Network (SSN) is a nonprofit organization that works to advance the use of research wherever policy decisions are made – from city halls to state legislatures to Washington.  SSN recruits scholars with an interest in communicating their research to media, practitioners, and policymakers, provides extensive training, connects researchers and science users, publishes policy briefs and lists of experts on current issues, and runs a podcast series. It also features a searchable database of experts on its website and has established chapters at the state level that facilitate local connections.  This partnership helps IAPHS support its members in connecting their research with the implementation of programs and activities that lead to better and more equitable health in populations.   IAPHS refers interested members to SSN and collaborates with SSN on podcasts and webinars and other activities; SSN offers training programs to IAPHS at reduced cost.
