Presentations Now Available from AcademyHealth's State Health Research and Policy Interest Group Meeting

The State Health Research and Policy Interest Group held its annual breakfast meeting at AcademyHealth’s National Health Policy Conference on February 8, 2011. This year’s meeting was entitled How to Engage and Inform the Public about Federal and State Health Reform: What Needs to be Communicated and What Are Potentially Successful Strategies. The session addressed the challenge of state-level implementation decisions where increased public scrutiny requires ongoing efforts to engage and inform the public. Panelists discussed polls, communication strategies, and lessons from Oregon’s efforts in state-based reform implementation.

Presentations from each of the meeting’s speakers can be found here. A detailed summary of the meeting is forthcoming.
