What's Next? The Future of Public Health

 On June 9, 2016, “What’s Next? The Future of Public Health” gathered some of the nation’s top writers on issues affecting health to share their expertise in a future-focused discussion on pandemics, mental health and social justice—important topics of public opinion.

Through informal talks, the participants explored bold visions of key issues that will shape the future of public health.
