Building off of the Institute of Medicine’s definition of public health, the theme of ASTHO’s 2015 Annual Meeting is “Creating the Conditions for Health in Our States and Territories.”
We will highlight states and territories as “laboratories of democracy” where public health agencies play a key role in the development and testing of new policies and programs aimed at creating the conditions for optimal health.
The agenda showcases:
- State and territorial examples of Health in All Policies strategies
- Effective healthy aging programs
- Preventing adverse childhood experiences
- Partnerships in tribal health
- Highlights of State Innovation Models
- Building an economic case for public health prevention

Registration for the Policy Summit and Annual Meeting is now open. ASTHO welcomes corporate sponsorship for our Annual Meeting.
The meeting occurs on the 50th anniversary of the 89th Congress, which launched numerous programs intended to improve the lives of every American. The 89th Congress created Medicare and Medicaid, voting rights protection, food stamps, urban renewal, the first broad federal investment in elementary and high school education, Head Start, consumer safety and environmental regulations, funding for community action groups, community health centers, and the Peace Corps—and these programs continue to shape the conditions that affect health in our states and territories.
We provide a unique opportunity to strategize and build relationships with senior state and territorial leaders on national public health priorities. We hope that you can join us for this important gathering of public health leaders.
ASTHO's annual meeting welcomes state and territorial health officials; department heads and other leaders at state and local health agencies; individuals from federal health agencies, academic institutions, and healthcare facilities; private sector health industry executives; and leaders from ASTHO affiliates and other public health organizations into a conversation to address strategic public health and leadership issues.
