APTR coordinated a Health in All Education Invitational Meeting held at CDC Headquarters in Atlanta, GA on June 15, 2018. The meeting was co-sponsored by APTR and the CDC Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services (CSELS), Division of Scientific Education and Professional Development (DSEPD), Population Health Workforce Branch, Academic Partnerships to Improve Health Program. The purpose of the meeting was to demonstrate the importance of integrating population health principles into higher education practices, to share examples of CDC collaboration with non-traditional disciplines, and to discuss opportunities to promote interdisciplinary learning to prepare for collaborative, interprofessional practice.

This one-day meeting examined the relationships between higher education and public health as well as the range of current and recent partnerships between CDC and academic disciplines such as law, economics, social work, environmental engineering, informatics, liberal arts, and global education. Representatives from invited disciplines provided a brief overview of the role of health in their professions, examples of population health in the curriculum of their disciplines, and levels of student interest and engagement in health-related topics of national significance. 

A report with highlights and recommendations from the meeting will be available in August.
