The annual meeting of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) begins next week in Austin, Texas, bringing together chief health officials and other key public health leaders to talk about public health issues in the United States. NewPublicHealth will be on the ground throughout the meeting covering workshops, sessions and keynote speeches, as well as speaking with program speakers and conference attendees.

Discussions will highlight the critical opportunities for integrating and coordinating health care and public health. We will also capture stories from the front lines in Texas and beyond that illustrate the creativity, vision and impact of public health, including the role businesses can play in partnerships for prevention. Coverage will also include interviews with thought leaders including Paul Jarris, Judith Monroe, José Montero and more.
