Convening influential leaders from across the state's public health community, the State of Public Health Conference is a day-long gathering focused on meaningful, constructive dialogue and practical solutions for Georgia's public health challenges. The conference will include interactive, solution-driven workshops, as well as a keynote presentation by Tyler Norris, the vice president of Total Health Partnerships at Kaiser Permanente, and a plenary speech by Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, the Public Health Commissioner of Georgia.

The State of Public Health aims to bring together the public health workforce, elected officials, policy makers, academia, community-based health organizations, the business community and others passionate about improving the health of all Georgians. Its goal is to craft a practical, pragmatic plan of action for Georgia's leaders that is realistic about the myriad of challenges confronting the state's public health system.
