Population Health Improvement is a new way to look at the health status of a community that focuses on the population's health, not solely a patient's. We'll learn why some believe this perspective can offer a better way to address a number of health problems in communities, including: obesity, diabetes, food security, behavioral health and drug addiction.

Guests:  Ron Deprez, president of the Public Health Research Institute (Deer Isle, Maine) and an associate research professor at the University of New England.
