Save the Date: 5/26 – IAPHS Northwest Regional Workshop, Co-Hosted by CSDE
Posted: 1/31/2017 (CSDE Workshop)
The Center for Studies in Demography & Ecology is pleased to announce that it will be co-hosting the first northwest regional conference of the Interdisciplinary Association of Population Health Science (IAPHS).
“From Research Labs to Community and Back Again: Innovative Collaborations that Advance Population Health” will examine how we integrate the science of population health with improvements in population health. This IAPHS regional conference will intentionally bridge the gaps between scientists, health practitioners, policy makers and community members. The conference will highlight projects originating in the Pacific Northwest that have bridged those divides or are on the cusp of doing so.
The IAPHS was founded in 2016 to foster scientific innovation and discovery to improve the health of populations and reduce health disparities. The mission of IAPHS is to provide a forum that will connect population health scientists across disciplines and sectors, advance the development of population health science, and promote its application.
Our keynote speaker is Sandro Galea (MD, MPH, Dr. P.H.) Dean and Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health. Dr. Galea is also the first president of the IAPHS and will offer his vision for population health science in the coming decades.
Mark you calendars for May 26 and look for updates.
Time: 12:30 - 6:30 PM PT
Location: University of Washington, Center for Urban Horticulture
