The workshop will be held virtually during the mornings of June 14th and 17th (8am – 12pm Pacific Time).

The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare many of the shortcomings of our public health system. In confronting the innumerable challenges of this pandemic, we have also learned many valuable lessons and developed innovative approaches to managing public health.

CCST invites you to a workshop where we will synthesize some of these lessons learned and collectively build a vision for a 21st Century Public Health System.

  • Who do we now understand should be considered part of the public health system?
  • What capabilities do we want to build into this system to ensure that we are more resilient during the next pandemic?

This virtual workshop will feature a keynote, 6 interactive roundtable discussions, and 2 synthesis sessions focused on producing actionable recommendations for California’s policymakers.

Please apply by April 15 for full consideration.
