Thank you to everyone who joined us to make this conference such a great success.
The Institute's fifth annual conference focused on addressing the public health challenges of the 21st century. The afternoon will began with a keynote address from James S. Marks, MD, MPH, Senior Vice President and Director, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Following the keynote, we focused on one specific challenge greatly affecting St. Louis: violence prevention and the role of public health. Our distinguished panel of speakers will addressed this challenge and engageed the audience in a thought-provoking discussion. This conference was a great opportunity to network with public health leaders, researchers, and practitioners and learn more about the research and programs that are advancing the field of public health.
