Call for Abstracts: Public Health Systems and Services Research Keeneland 2012 Conference

Dec 16, 2011, 4:36 PM, Posted by NewPublicHealth


For the fifth year, close to 400 researchers, practitioners and policymakers will come together in Lexington, Ky., to share innovative ideas on how to improve the public health system. The conference will take place April 17 to April 19, 2012, and will continue the conversation on the impact of specific public health strategies on the quality and performance of the United States public health infrastructure. The conference also provides an opportunity to share new research that will allow decision-makers to more efficiently use scarce resources to organize, finance and deliver services through the public health system.

Speakers at this year's conference include Harvey Fineberg, MD, MPP, PhD, President of the Institute of Medicine and Thomas Frieden, MD, MPH, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The call for abstracts is open now through January 9, 2012 at 3 p.m. ET. Questions regarding submission guidelines should be sent to the national program office (email abstracts@publichealthsystems. org).
