Calling for 2020 Population Health
Faculty!

We're expanding our Population Health Integration Curriculum - adding three new 1 - 1.5 hour CME/MOC courses. To do that, we need additional faculty experts to aid in the development of these scientific evidence-based courses to build a foundation of population health expertise and help physicians evaluate and integrate population-level strategies in their work settings.

Faculty members will lead the way in developing courses and sharing knowledge on population health strategies across the health care landscape, together with other like-minded experts in the field. Faculty members will be compensated for their work in course development.

ACPM Statement on the Gun Violence Epidemic
In light of the tragic mass shootings over the last week, ACPM supports common-sense prevention efforts to prevent future accidental and purposeful gun injury and death. At least 32 people tragically lost their lives in the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Every gun death is preventable, and we urge Congress and the Administration to take immediate action.
