The Affordable Care Act is transforming our nation's health system with a renewed emphasis on prevention and wellness. Now, more than ever, the public health community needs the best information on the law, along with the opportunities and challenges it presents.
Prevention Institute is joining the American Public Health Association as a partner organization for "Implementing Health Reform: A Public Health Approach," to be held June 23-25, 2011, in Chicago. This APHA Midyear Meeting will offer the opportunity to learn in an interactive environment what the Affordable Care Act means for public health, wellness and prevention. It will equip attendees with the tools needed for implementing the provisions of the Affordable Care Act and improving health in communities across the country.
This meeting will not be a place to sit back and listen; rather it will provide a forum to articulate a call to action for all of those interested in moving from a medical care delivery system to a system that assures health and wellness. The public health community and current and new partners will come together to give distinct voice to our cause.
