This course provides an introduction to Population Health Management and builds the context for the essential role that multi-faceted, scale-able health promotion and prevention interventions play in achieving sustainable, value-based health outcomes at national and global levels. This course will lay the foundation for assessing and developing population health initiatives using the social-ecological framework. In Part 1, participants will evaluate the economic burden and prosperity costs of chronic disease management. In Part 2, participants will survey historical and contemporary population health initiatives to close the gap between disease management and sustainable community health. In Part 3, participants will evaluate evidence-based interventions for key health behaviors.
