Disclosure Statement: Relevant financial relationships will be disclosed to participants at the conference. Faculty members are required to

The activity planning committee members have disclosed that they have no relevant financial relationships. There is

Description: The primary objective of the Summit is to educate state and community leaders on how to move from data analysis to action to improve population health outcomes. Secondary objectives include improving participants' knowledge of regional assets and identifying opportunities to collaborate and maximize the impact of those assets. Finally, facilitators at each regional site will lead discussions to set goals for the coming year. Facilitators and participants will use state and local health assessments as a guide for this goal-setting exercise. Given that South Carolina is one of the 10 least healthy states according to America's Health Rankings, our Summit can also make use of the Roadmaps to Health Action Center tools and resources as a guide for this goal setting.
Handouts: No handouts are currently available.
