Who’s Leading the Leading Health Indicators? Webinar: Clinical Preventive Services 

Thursday, May 22, 2014 12:00 pm 
Eastern Daylight Time

Disease prevention and health promotion are key components to a healthy population. Clinical preventive services, such as routine disease screening and scheduled immunizations, play a large role in reducing death and disability and improving the Nation’s health. Immunizations are critical for young children and the population at large. Immunizing individual children helps to protect the health of the community. Widespread immunization is responsible for the control of many infectious diseases that were once common in this country and around the world. While we are making progress in the United States with respect to immunizations, disparities persist across socioeconomic groups that we need to address.

Through three presentations focusing on data, communication efforts, and effective implementation strategies, the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion will explore the importance of immunizations and the progress we are making to address this issue.
