This year's Midyear Meeting in Charlotte, N.C., will again offer an impressive roster of movers and shakers in public health. So, we thought we'd offer a little sneak peek at the Midyear Meeting's opening session speaker, Donald Berwick, who took the helm of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services shortly after the signing of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. During his tenure at CMS, Berwick oversaw significant changes, including the expansion of evidence-based preventive services for Medicare enrollees. Today, Berwick is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress.
Read more about Berwick's thoughts on the challenges facing public health in this Q&A with APHA's newspaper, The Nation's Health. And to learn more about the speakers you'll see in Charlotte (in just a few weeks!) take a look at this year's Midyear Meeting schedule.
