Join the discussion of Healthy People 2030 (and its Leading Health Indicators (LHIs)! The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (HHS/ODPHP) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) will provide an overview of Healthy People 2030, the newly released LHIs and discuss the importance of implementing Healthy People 2030 at the local level.
Released in August 2020, Healthy People 2030 is the fifth iteration of the initiative, and provides 10-year, national public health objectives and tools to help monitor and track progress toward achieving them. In December 2020, HHS released the LHIs, which are a focused set of measurable Healthy People 2030 objectives chosen to communicate high-priority health issues and drive action to address them. They are used to assess the health of the nation, facilitate collaboration across sectors, and promote action at the national, state, and community levels to improve the health and well-being of all people.
This webinar will highlight the importance of Healthy People 2030 and its implementation at the local level during the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also share previous Healthy People implementation successes, and proposed implementation activities for Healthy People 2030 with contributions by:
- RADM Paul Reed, MD, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services;
