Program Description:
Trust is a fundamental component of health care. Not only is trust at the core of the doctor-patient relationship, it is an essential element of public health. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored that effective public health messaging is contingent on people trusting public health officials as well as the science and data behind their recommendations. Trust also plays a key role in the acceptance of recommended prevention interventions including the willingness to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The 18th Annual Public Health Leadership Forum will convene leaders in medicine, public health, policy, and government to explore the trust challenges facing public health, examine strategies to counter fear and misinformation, and identify ways to work together to foster the trust and integrity necessary for the equitable delivery of care and uptake of public health interventions.
