PHA Forum - October 8th, 2020

PHA Innovation Summit and Capitol Caucus - October 27th & 28th

October was education month at PHA. Through two virtual conferences we heard the latest learning and practice innovation from 49 speakers representing pop health care providers, payers, investors, analysts, informatics, think tanks, research firms, solutions providers, behavioral health and other subject matter experts.  
These two events have set the stage for the work ahead of us at PHA. These twenty hours of presentations gave the audience an immense amount of information to digest as we push forward towards our ambitious goals. As we look ahead, PHA has a vision, a mission, and a plan for what we can achieve together. These two events delivered one clear thesis, that the market, the industry, and the profession of population health management are growing in importance. Our coalition aims to work squarely at the epicenter of that progress. 
If you missed these events, both event archives are available for viewing. Click on the images above to access, and reach out to from your member organization's email to get the member discount code for the Summit archive. 
Thank our all our members, the attendees of the conferences, the speakers and the conference supporters. Your collective contributions created two outstanding events. 

Member Showcase Webinar: Healthcare’s New Diagnosis: Poverty (Z59.5) A Standard of Care to Treat the Social Determinants of Health

Marcella Wilson, PhD
More than a decade ago, Dr. Marcella Wilson took over a failing charity, and recognized two frequently opposing paradigms for addressing poverty: everyone had good intentions, but a “character flaw” mentality infused their efforts. Unlike other public health challenges, there was lack of a “science of poverty.” Join us for a joint presentation with Drs. Wilson, Osmick, and Kaminski about the evolving science of poverty, and how that knowledge can be applied to address poverty as a core social determinant of health to strive for healthier populations.
This webinar is presented in partnership between PHA's Member Showcase Webinar Series and the Jefferson College of Population Health's PopTalk Series, register below!
