Video Summary
Dr. Boris Lushniak, former United States Deputy Surgeon General, presented a webinar on the Ten Essential Public Health Services. The presentation discussed the history, revisions, and practical implications of the essential services.

The services include assessing and monitoring population health, investigating health problems and hazards, informing and educating the public, strengthening community partnerships, and implementing policies that impact health. The revised framework places a strong emphasis on equity and social justice, aiming to remove barriers and systemic issues that contribute to health inequities. The webinar highlighted the importance of incorporating the essential services into public health education, practice, and reporting. It emphasized the need for a well-resourced workforce and organizational infrastructure in order to effectively implement the essential services.
