Reaching Consensus on Public Health Challenges: Climate Change, Reproductive Health, and Firearm Safety

As ASTHO celebrates 75 years supporting state and territorial public health agencies, an important part of our past and our future is developing consensus on difficult public health issues. Join ASTHO alumni and affiliate members for this in-person or virtual symposium discussion on developing nonpartisan, consensus-driven approaches to improving public health. Using topics such as climate change, firearm safety, and reproductive health, panelists will explore effective ways to promote health and prevent disease while also addressing controversy, conflict, and disagreement.
