Join us for the first in a three-part webinar series about the Healthy People 2020 Law and Health Policy Project. The free series is hosted by the ABA Health Law Section’s Public Health and Policy Interest Group, CDC’s Public Health Law Program, and HHS’s Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. The series will focus on the role of law in advancing health outcomes.
The first webinar will introduce the federal Healthy People initiative and describe the Healthy People 2020 (HP2020) Law and Health Policy Project. Healthy People provides science-based, 10-year national health targets to improve the health of all Americans. The HP2020 Law and Health Policy project aims to use the Healthy People framework to provide the best available evidence and data to inform and advance the discussion about how law and policies can impact health. This project, a collaboration between the CDC Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Department of Health and Human Services, and CDC’s Public Health Law Program, will develop reports focused on law and policy related to specific Healthy People topic areas and objectives.
