From Innovation to Dissemination

2015-16 CPHI Seminiar Series

This year's CPHI seminar series is titled From Innovation to Dissemination. The series builds upon the University of Pennsylvania's annual theme for 2015/16 - The Year of Discovery that focuses on both the long-range, planned and calculated research toward an intended goal as well as the more "spontaneous and serendipitous" discoveries. This year's series will create a forum for cross-sector communication around innovative public health solutions. Seminars will present real world solutions to complex problems including new finance mechanisms to fund public health initiatives, the use of digital health technology, and innovative approaches to address the opioid epidemic.

Throughout each series, we aim to encourage different perspectives to add to the conversation; we hope to foster current collaborations and spark new ones; and we hope to instill the importance of always searching for new ways to improve health.
