2013 Public Health Leaders Panel

NWCPHP is pleased to announce the 2014 Summer Institute plenary speakers. All sessions take place at the University of Washington’s South Campus Center.

May 5, 2014

Plenary sessions are a much-loved part of the Summer Institute for Public Health Practice, and NWCPHP is pleased to announce the 2014 lineup

A participant from 2013 noted: "I really enjoyed the session with public health leaders. They had so much insight, and I loved hearing their perspectives."

This year's leadership forum takes place on Tuesday, August 5, and is open to the general public. In this panel discussion, three regional public health and health care leaders offer their perspectives on how health care reform is affecting their work. The panelists will give details about how they are building new, cross-disciplinary collaborations for improving community health. 

Panelists include Muriel DeLaVergne-Brown, MPH, RN, Public Health Director for Crook County Oregon; Scott Forslund, MBA, Communications Director for Premera and Chair of the Snohomish Health Leadership Coalition; and Mark Szalwinski, MHA, Executive Vice President of Group Health Medical Centers.

NWCPHP Director, Tao Kwan-Gett, MD, MPH, will moderate the discussion and facilitate a Q&A session with the audience. A complimentary networking reception immediately follows the event.

The lunchtime session on Wednesday, August 6, is a conversation on racial equity and health with University of Washington faculty member and community organizer, Scott Winn, MSW. Winn will facilitate an interactive group dialogue to help participants learn from one another and think about race and health in new ways. This session is for registered Summer Institute participants only.
