2017 Annual Meeting & Expo
DCU Center, Worcester, MA | Wednesday, November 29 | 8:30 am
This high-profile networking and educational event will bring together more than 350 public health professionals, students and activists from across the state for a lively and insightful dialogue about how we can seize the opportunity to create a health care system that promotes healthier communities.
The meeting will feature a panel of national and state leaders who are leading the way in shaping health care transformation by focusing specifically on the social determinants of health. With massive changes to health care delivery and financing taking place right now in Massachusetts and nationally, we will explore together how the public health community can influence our health system to meaningfully address non-medical barriers to health in Massachusetts.
