Our 2021 Population Health Blog featured stories on our student committee’s work and emerging scholars, IAPHS news, conference highlights, COVID-19, human milk feeding, community ownership, health equity, the power of interdisciplinary work, and professional advice on finding funding and securing joint academic appointments. And each month, we also share some of the top stories in the world of population health in our News Roundups.
We continue to be amazed at the breadth and innovation in scholarship, the ongoing dedication to student success, collaboration, and mentoring, and policy outreach. We thank all of our contributors over the past year, especially our wonderful outgoing editor, Danya Keene. We encourage you to read all our authors’ thoughtful work, and take a moment to offer a comment to further the dialogue.
Here are some 2021 blog highlights.
- Chris Bachrach took a deep dive into our 2021 virtual conference, Anna Zajacova reviewed the conference’s chronic pain panel, and Kathryn Leifheit and Katherine Chen recapped the panel on power, policy, and a place to live.
- Several authors submitted insightful COVID-related posts, including posts on the COVID-19 US state policy database (Raifman, Skinner, and Raderman), vaccinations and medical mistrust (Hyacinthe and Whittaker), the COVID-19 health disparities data problem (Dennis, Lodge, and Karasik), and how multi- and interdisciplinary science is improving COVID-19 research (Marcum, Bostean, Garfin, Miller-Day, and Carpiano).
