Plenary Session 02: Fireside Chat with Minnesota Health Commissioners: Perspectives on Informing Population Health Policy with Evidence

Population health and well-being are critical to the success of our nation, states and communities. Yet, trends such as eroding life expectancy and significant inequities threaten the goals of physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being for ALL. With a facilitator, our panel of current and previous Minnesota health commissioners under three different administrations (Democratic, Republican and Independent) will have a "fireside chat" and provide perspectives on the science, research, and policy to change our course. They will highlight gaps in the science and research needed for the evidence base to create better population health and a sustainable, affordable health care system.

The presentation will be moderated by Stephen Fortmann.

Plenary Session 04: Blending Story with Data to Inspire Change

When was the last time you heard a really good story? What captivated you and what do you remember? There is something inarguably powerful in the emotional connection we have when we experience a good story. A well-told story transports us and has a persuasive ability to influence how we might think about something, to raise awareness or even to change our minds. It is a pathway to remember information. This is the goal of good research. All the conscientious and painstaking work of discovering and building a base of evidence is to be able to share a good, memorable story that can lead to improved health and health care. Unfortunately, dissemination and communication of data can fall flat if the people and communities who could benefit from research findings are not able to hear or receive it. In this interactive session, participants will explore best practices to turn research findings into retainable, heartfelt stories that can be used for teaching, motivation, and ultimately a call to action. Experiential activities will build skills for taking health data off the page and into the community in meaningful ways.
