Description 
Drawing on his experiences as a clinician, public servant, and policy advisor, Dr. Parekh will discuss that in order to optimize health in America, we must leverage health insurance programs to promote disease prevention, expand primary care, attend to the social determinants of health, support making the healthier choice the easy choice for individuals, and increase public health investments. He will describe the areas of common ground to be found in public health and prevention, even between the entrenched sides in the healthcare policy debate and try to establish a foundation on which healthcare policy makers and advocates can build. Providing concrete steps that federal policymakers should take to promote prevention both within and outside our healthcare sector, he will inform the audience about the alarming consequences of preventable disease and describe how we can and must do better in this country to reduce preventable deaths. The current COVID-pandemic makes it all the more important to have this discussion. 

Learning Objectives 

  • Evaluate the role elected officials and policymakers can play in reducing preventable deaths. 
  • Discuss the urgency given the nation’s health trends for federal leadership to catalyze state and local efforts. 
  • Provide examples of prevention in action from across the country, giving attendees a view into why prevention-first policies are important and how they can be accomplished.
