Public Health Summer Institute 2023: Draft Program Released

PHABC’s Public Health Summer Institute is fast approaching! Register now to attend the intensive two-day series on June 22 and 23.

Day one of the Summer Institute will discuss the challenges and ethical considerations associated with AI, emphasizing the importance of inclusivity and equity in addressing them.

Day two will emphasize how healthy aging is a central public health concern for society as a whole and specific populations that suffer from health inequities. The imperative derives, in part, from the usual worries about aging demographics and pressure on health and social care systems that will inevitably threaten their sustainability.

Download the updated draft program now to review the schedule, speakers, presentations, and discussion topics.
