Additional slides may be presented at the conference.

Circle of Health is a public-private and medical-community project initiated by the Stearns-Benton Medical Society to address community health issues. Presenters will outline how data mobilized the local medical society to focus on pertussis, with an expanded, future goal of improving the health in Benton and Stearns counties. While this project is in its beginning phase, it sets the stage for discussions to more successfully integrate medical care and public health services.
