On behalf of the Planning Committee for the 2019 Population Health Summit, the University at Albany School of Public Health in collaboration with the New York State Public Health Association invites you to submit an abstract for poster presentation.

Submissions may include case studies, original research, or project proposals for public feedback. Priority will be given to abstracts submitted by community coalitions on projects advanced as part of their Prevention Agenda activities. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Progress and challenges in creating coalitions, setting priorities, implementing and evaluating local Prevention Agenda related community health improvement efforts led by local health departments, hospitals, community-based organizations, coalitions, community health centers, or other anchor institutions;
  • The results of community based population health interventions to address social (broader) determinants of health and/or racial, ethnic, socio economic health disparities as part of the Prevention Agenda and/or DSRIP Domain 3 and 4 goals; or
  • Population health strategies that connect primary care practices with community based efforts to address social determinants of health and health disparities.

This call is open to public health professionals, community practitioners, hospital leaders, public officials, leaders from sectors promoting health, business leaders, and researchers and students across these sectors and disciplines, (e.g. public health, economic, community development, business, medicine, pharmacology, education, transportation, and urban planning).
