Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Jefferson College of Population Health Forum

Jefferson College of Population Health (JCPH) Forums are monthly programs (September-June) sponsored by the Jefferson College of Population Health. The Forums are designed to impart advanced information on population health, public health, quality and safety and chronic disease management. Presented by regional thought leaders, the Forums provide a venue to discuss and explore the broad health policy issues affecting health care today. The learning objectives of each forum are to:

  1. Explain current information, initiatives and trends in population health, public health, quality and safety, and wellness and prevention.
  2. Discuss broad health policy issues affecting health care today.
  3. Apply best practices to a variety of health care settings.

The JCPH Forums are appropriate for Thomas Jefferson University students, faculty and staff; healthcare professionals, administrators and advocates; public policy analysts and community health leaders.

Listen to podcasts of previous JCPH Forums available on Jefferson Digital Commons.
