Can We Talk? Bridging Political Divides for the Health of the Public

The US is divided. Sides are speaking past each other, and populations that once experienced health gains are now seeing a dip in life expectancy. How can we better communicate and discuss potential solutions for our population health problems? This presentation will bring together three leaders in politics and media to discuss how we can effectively engage in meaningful conversation that can move us collectively forward in these polarized and polarizing times.
