The National Institutes of Health (NIH) held a two-day conference that brought together Federal agencies that invest in health promotion and disease prevention research with those that implement the research to discover shared research needs and formed new partnerships.
What was the conference about?
The two days of sessions, on June 28 and June 29, provided an exciting opportunity for those that
develop Federal programs to gather, discuss common health promotion and disease prevention research needs, learn about innovative prevention programs, and form partnerships across agencies and with state health officials who implement prevention research.
Who were there?
Over 100 representatives from NIH, CDC, AHRQ, HRSA, HHS, CMS, SAMHSA, HUD, Department of Justice, Department of Transportation, and other sister Federal agencies joined state health officials.
