1101 Gorman St., Raleigh, NC 27606
Registration Fee: $10
This engaging lecture will examine the social determinants of health and focus on how health and the prevalence of disease is influenced by our social, physical, and genetic environments. Dr. Lushniak will use the history of successes and lessons learned from the fight against tobacco to inform how we may move the needle on wellness. Included in his presentation will be the importance of public health initiatives including the full spectrum of partners in prevention- individuals, families, communities, education, health care, employers, businesses, and governments. The ultimate goal is changing socioeconomic factors, changing the context, and implementation of long-lasting protective interventions to have an impact on the health of individuals, the community, and the nation.
Dr. Lushniak will discuss the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans and reflect on the extensive new knowledge gained since the first guidelines in 2008.
