Public Engagement and Translation

Wednesday, 20 August 2014: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
Ballroom D (Dena'ina Center)

To the extent that epidemiology truly seeks to be relevant to populations and public health, it must be engaged with the public in more ways and more actively than it has up until now. This session will cover issues related to translation of epidemiological results for influencing policies and behaviors, as well as on how to involve the community in research so that epidemiological findings are more likely to have an impact.
