The day will bring together public health scholars, journalists, thought leaders, and the wider public health community to discuss how we can view Trump-era policies and their impact on health more than a year into the new administration. The day is very much nonpartisan, and we do not approach this with any preordained answers. We hope that speakers will use the best available data to inform their presentation, or—recognizing that it is still too early for many definitive studies—to ground their comments in the state-of-the-science.
