Join the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from August 20-23, 2018 for the next Public Health Informatics Conference, Connecting Systems and People to Improve Population Health. The Conference considers ‘population health‘ to broadly mean “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group.” However, we also acknowledge that definitions of ‘population’ – and therefore ‘population health’ – vary by sectors and the collective individuals they serve. Recognizing that these sectors are critical components of the public health system, the conference welcomes engagement and perspectives from all sectors on how to collaboratively and comprehensively achieve better health outcomes for those whom they serve.
