The Futures of Public Health: Public Health 2030 (2.6MB / 56 slides)

What will public health look like in the U.S. in the year 2030? What should public health leaders be doing today to prepare? Futurist Dr. Clement Bezold will help us understand the alternative paths that 21st century public health could take as presented in Public Health 2030: A Scenario Exploration, released this summer by the Institute for Alternative Futures. He'll share long-term strategies that local and state leaders can use to advance public health, no matter what the future holds.

Clement Bezold is founder and chair of the Institute for Alternative Futures. He has been a major developer of foresight techniques, applying futures research, and strategic planning methods in both the public and private sectors. As a consultant, Dr. Bezold has worked with many Fortune 500 companies along with major organizations, including the World Health Organization, the National Institutes of Health, the Rockefeller Foundation, AARP, and the American Cancer Society.
