Preventive Medicine 2015
, the annual meeting of the American College of Preventive Medicine, is the premier event for professionals in disease prevention and health promotion. The meeting advances the science of preventive medicine through state-of-the-art educational programming and abundant networking opportunities.

Meeting Tracks Include:
  • Clinical Preventive & Lifestyle Medicine
    This track covers a wide range of topics in evidence-based clinical preventive and lifestyle medicine. Functionally, the range of topics covered includes health promotion, early clinical detection and case finding, and the application of environmental, behavioral, medical and motivational principles to the prevention and management of lifestyle-related health problems in a clinical setting. Implicit in this construct is the need for physicians to understand better the risk factors and etiologies of diseases as they relate to lifestyle, and have the skills to implement meaningful behavioral changes in both individuals and groups. As a result of a long-standing collaboration between ACPM and AHRQ, this track also features an update from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and from AHRQ’s Prevention and Care Management Portfolio.

  • Population Health
    This track encompasses innovations in population-based approaches to preventing and controlling disease. Sessions in this track aim to emphasize issues of public health significance. Session topics typically cover a wide range of health promotion and disease prevention issues, including such topics as chronic disease prevention and control, immunizations, sexually transmitted diseases and other infectious diseases, and terrorism and emergency preparedness.

  • Medical Quality
    This track increases the knowledge and skills needed to advance medical quality and health outcomes, including patient safety, from a preventive medicine perspective.

  • Technology and Informatics
    This track provides participants with an understanding of important and emerging public health and medical technology issues of concern to preventive medicine professionals and to support the utilization of such technology in preventive medicine practice.

  • Global Health
    This track addresses the global context of key issues in the health of individuals, communities, and populations with the goal of protecting, promoting, and maintaining health and well-being by preventing disease, disability, and death. This track identifies best practices, lessons learned, and research which may be adapted to improve health across all contexts. Through a global lens, this track addresses areas such as infectious and non-communicable diseases, environmental health, population & reproductive health, maternal/child health, health security, disaster preparedness and response, culturally appropriate care, bringing interventions to scale, strengthening health systems, improving the quality of health services and innovations to meet health challenges in creative ways.
