Digital communication has created unique challenges and opportunities for health promotion. Despite widespread use of the internet and social media by the public, and the evidence base that supports their use, there is limited integration among government, academia, healthcare, and the technology sectors.
This second invitation-only Digital Health Promotion Executive Leadership Summit builds on the successful Summit in 2018, which produced the first consensus statement on digital health published in the American Journal of Public Health (February 2019) and a special journal issue of Health Education & Behavior now in production. The Summit will convene an exclusive group of up to 100 thought leaders working in digital health technology from government, academic circles, and private industry, including government chief information officers/architects, deans of schools of public health, and industry social media leaders.
This meeting will provide an intimate forum for catalyzing exchange among experts working in the field to improve the public’s health. Among the topics to be explored in keynote, plenary and concurrent sessions are:
The Opioid Crisis
Privacy and Regulation
