Objectives of the Millennial Health Leaders Summit


  • OMHHE's Objectives for the Summit are to:

  • Describe the most recent national data available on racial and ethnic health disparities, and health disparities experienced by other selected population groups;
  • Highlight current and future opportunities and challenges in addressing health disparities that these future leaders will encounter upon joining the public health, healthcare, and policy workforce;
  • Introduce these future leaders to CDC’s investments in reducing health disparities;
  • Examine evidence-based models and strategies for reducing health disparities across a range of health issues;
  • Photos of racially and ethnically diverse young scholars and medical proffessionals.
  • Identify resources that will inform and enhance their work in the field;
  • Promote networking and shared learning between CDC subject matter experts and future leaders; and
  • Engage future leaders in collective problem-solving to identify innovative strategies for addressing health disparities and achieving health equity.

  • This is a highly interactive event. The Millennial Health Leaders will leave the Summit having had a unique experience of exploring how contemporary public health research, practice, and policies are developed, implemented and evaluated; raising questions about real world challenges and solutions with CDC scientists and practitioners and with their peers; and identifying how they might contribute to achieving a nation free of preventable health disparities.
