2023 - 2024 MPHA “Public Health Matters” Policy Forum Series

The theme for this year’s breakfast forum series is all about changing views in public health and health care. There are tried and true recommendations that have stood the test of time. There are also recommendations that are no longer considered the best thing to do. Our four forums will bring together thought-leaders and public health advocates working to address what has withstood the test of time and what has changed.

The forums will be in-person at New Brighton Community Center. Check-in and a light breakfast begin at 7:30am. Forums begin promptly at 8:00 am and conclude at 9:30am.

Mythbusters: What’s tried and true; what’s new?

March 22, 2024...mid-years

With new recommendations about preventive care services—e.g., mammograms, prostate exams, colon cancer screening—what’s a middle-aged adult supposed to do? Even recommendations about how much water to drink and how much exercising is enough are always changing. What’s new, what’s being reinterpreted and what is staying the same will be discussed at this forum.

Moderator: Paul Terry

Panelists: Dr. Caleb Schultz, Kris Haugen, Mandy Wannarka
