Transforming Public Health: Learning From the Past, Preparing for the Future

Wednesday, October 27 | 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM

As the pandemic continues, how do we recognize the value of public health for the future? How do we prepare our public health infrastructure for future emergencies? Can we strengthen public trust in our health leaders and processes? In what ways can we align health care systems and fortify infrastructure, so that they are ready when we need them most?

The Institute for Public Health's 14th Annual Conference will consist of presentations and discussions on topics including equity in vaccine distribution in the U.S. and around the globe, efficiencies (and inefficiencies) in public health infrastructure, and communication strategies.
