Chair, Science & Medical Advisory Committee for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

How do we push boundaries in public health to improve health outcomes? What is “Precision Prevention” and how has it contributed to the dramatic public health achievements for children over the past 100 years? These questions will be addressed in a talk by Dr. Flaura Winston, Distinguished Chair of Pediatrics at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She will draw from her successes in the field of pediatric injury prevention, and describe a public health future that is built on a tiered risk framework -Precision Prevention – that goes beyond universal level interventions in order to meet the needs of those at highest risk. Throughout her talk, Dr. Winston will emphasize the importance of public health entrepreneurship to ensure successful and sustainable implementation.
