Join us on Wednesday, February 20 at 12:00 p.m. ET to learn about the role of laws and policies in creating a healthier Nation over the coming decade. Presenters will share an overview of the Healthy People 2030 development process, discuss the role of law and policy in the initiative, and demonstrate innovative efforts in the Nation’s largest cities to promote evidence-based legal and policy approaches to address population health challenges.
About the Law and Health Policy Project
The goal of the Healthy People Law and Health Policy project is to highlight how evidence-based legal and policy interventions and strategies can facilitate progress toward Healthy People objectives by improving community health and well-being. In addition to reports and webinars, the project includes “Bright Spots,” or success stories, that highlight successful policy interventions that have led to improved health outcomes.
The project is a collaboration between the HHS Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the CDC Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
