The Roundtable on Population Health Improvement will convene a one-day public workshop that will explore the broad and multidisciplinary nature of the population health workforce. The workshop will discuss:
(1) Facilitating a population health orientation/perspective among public health and health care leaders and professionals;
(2) Framing the work of personnel such as community health workers, health navigators, and peer-to-peer chronic disease management educators within the context of population health; and
(3) Leveraging the competencies of other (nonmedical and nonpublic health) workforces, such as education, transportation, and planning, within the public and private sectors working to include a “health in all policies,” community livability, or well-being orientation in their activities.
The workshop will also be webcast.
A proceedings of the presentations and discussion at the workshop will be prepared after the workshop.
An agenda is forthcoming.
