Expanding the Boundaries of Health Care Systems - Social Determinants and Community-oriented Health Care Delivery
Welcome Message

Preventive Medicine 2020 Online brought together leaders from medicine and public health to examine the most pressing issues in healthcare today, and how the Nation’s healthcare system can be transformed around prevention. This virtual meeting offered high-quality medical education programming, networking opportunities, and the recognition of the best in the profession.

The meeting was organized around critical topics including innovations in community health, public health policy, evidence and practice, health systems transformation and lifestyle medicine. Each meeting day was themed around two critical topics, with distinct sessions addressing shared themes in the practice of prevention.


Preventive Medicine 2020 Online focused on big, bold, upstream ideas and the people, places, and programs that are making them a reality today. Transformation is only possible with a clear vision, audacious goals, an innovative mindset, and the will to implement new policy and practice, honestly evaluate change, and engage stakeholders at every level.

Across the country, health care systems and community-based organizations are partnering together to transforming care in their communities. The presentation will provide examples of innovative partnerships between healthcare systems and community-based organizations to address food insecurity challenges and lack of access to outdoor space for exercise. This session explores lessons learned and best practices for successful innovative partnerships in this regard.
