Public Health Funding: Why should they care?
Breakout Session 3003.0
Thursday, June 28 - 8:30AM-10:00AM
Public health programs at all levels have been underfunded and in recent years has seen additional cuts which has further eroded the ability of the public health infrastructure to protect the health of all of our nation’s residents. This session would focus on the latest data on how best to frame public health and prevention spending for different audiences, the latest polling data and the most effective messages.
