Department of Population Health Conference

April 11, 2016 • NYU Langone Medical Center • 550 First Ave • Smilow Research Building • NYC

The Health and Conference Series brings together leading investigators, policymakers, practitioners, and community leaders to better leverage the intersection between Health and… its many determinants, embracing healthcare as one important contributor but focusing as well on other frameworks (e.g., place) and sectors (e.g., education). The goal of the conference is to bridge the worlds of practice, research, and policy, advancing population health by identifying front-line innovations, developing pressing questions requiring investigation, and defining promising policies and partnerships. The first conference was held on April 11, 2016, at NYU Langone Medical Center, and we will hold an annual conference in the Spring.
