A preliminary program for the meeting is now available, thanks to the efforts of the 2018 Program Committee, led by Allison Aiello and Bob Hummer, IAPHS Administrative Director Sue Bevan, and the many people who submitted poster and panel proposals. The Program Committee received a record number of outstanding submissions and has worked hard to incorporate as many as possible in the program.
This year’s conference will continue the great traditions established in previous meetings. Highlights will include:
- Plenary panels on Innovations in Biosocial Linkages Across the Life Course, Political Economy and Population Health in the American States, and Technological Innovations and Population Health…Friends, Foes, or Both?;
- More interdisciplinary panels and poster sessions that feature the latest in population health science;
- Sessions that foster exchange about population health issues between scientists and stakeholders from policy and practice fields;
- A symposium, Population Health Science in the United States: Trends, Evidence, and Effective Policy, jointly organized by IAPHS and the Roundtable on Population Health Improvement, to be held prior to the start of IAPHS sessions;
- Roundtable discussions on professional development issues and communicating population health research; and
- Plenty of time for networking with a diverse set of people who share a commitment to population health science.
The 2018 conference is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the National Academy of Medicine Roundtable for Population Health Improvement, the Department of Health Policy and Management at George Washington University and the RWJF Health Policy Research Scholars Program.
Many thanks also go to:
- The Program Committee for their vision and hard work in organizing the program
