Lunch and Learn: Population Health’s Next Big Question: Where Would You Put The Money?

March 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Register here for a Lunch & Learn with David Kindig and John Mullahy!

The field of population health management starts with the idea that there is an optimal balance of investments in the multiple determinants of health (e.g., behavior, environment, socioeconomic status, medical care) to maximize overall health outcomes at the population level. In their recent Forefront piece, Can The Population Health “Fantasy Equation” Be Solved? Does It Need To Be?,  David Kindig and John Mullahy of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, ask: Why is it so hard to develop a so-called ‘fantasy equation’ that might allow us to define that optimal balance of investments with any precision? They describe the many factors that make it so hard to implement comprehensive population health strategies in practice, and provide a roadmap that accounts for the seeming impossibility of developing such an equation.

Join us on March 30 when Health Affairs Deputy Editor Rob Lott hosts Drs. Kindig and Mullahy, as well as Sanne Magnan, senior fellow at the HealthPartners Institute and former Minnesota Commissioner of Health, for a discussion of the Forefront article and the future of the field of population health.

Date:    Wednesday, March 30, 2022
Time:   1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Eastern
Place:  Online details will be shared with registrants 24 hours in advance of the event
