All Americans should have a high level of services and community infrastructure that protect, promote, and preserve their health and well-being; and every community should be prepared for emerging and ongoing threats. Achieving this vision requires strategies that prioritize value-based health care and sustained investments in proven prevention and public health activities tailored to meet community health needs and preferences.

Please join this Dialogue4Health Web Forum co-sponsored by American Public Health Association, Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute, and Trust for America's Health. The panel discussion featuring national public health leaders will highlight policy priorities for advancing prevention and wellness with the Administration and Congress. This Web Forum will also showcase the importance of leadership both in public health and across multiple sectors to integrate health care, behavioral health, social services, environmental health, and transportation. The panelists will address attendees’ questions in the Q&A session.

This Web Forum will provide valuable information for those working in sectors such as Public Health, Advocacy, Business, Community-based Organizations, Education, Faith-based Organizations, Hospitals/Health Systems, Insurance, Housing, Hunger, and Transportation.

Closed captioning is available to all attendees
