Given that Americans deserve the same level of public health protection, it is crucial that every health department across the country be proficient in a definable set of core capabilities. Join us on December 11 as BPC hosts a discussion on the importance of financing a public health infrastructure in the United States. During the event, panelists will examine the findings of a new white paper by The Public Health Leadership Forum, which was convened by RESOLVE. The paper will identify the key principles for financing state and local public health issues and the elements of a new proposed public health infrastructure fund.

The event will be webcast.
