SATELLITE SESSION ORGANIZER
University of Washington


FOCUS OF SATELLITE SESSION:
This session will aim to generate several promising ideas for cross-university population health partnerships that lead both to publication and potential funding.


SATELLITE SESSION DESCRIPTION:
this session will be a facilitated and highly interactive four-hour discussion led by leaders of the University of Washington's Population Health Initiative. The session is intended to identify opportunities for universities, faculty, and students to work together to generate solutions to some of the population health challenges we face in areas of human health, environmental resiliency, and social and economic equity.

Attendees will be organized in advance, with the aid of pre-reads, into groups self-selected based on their area of expertise and interest. The guided discussion will begin by identifying the individual research expertise and population health strengths of the universities represented. Each group will then collectively brainstorm a comprehensive list of project ideas related to their focus area that have the best chance of crossing universities.

Once a comprehensive list is developed, each table will coalesce around the table's top three ideas from their discussion. Each table will then report out to the entire group, allowing for questions and clarification. Once very table has presented, the attendees will individually vote on the three ideas they find to be most promising.

Post-session, the top three ideas identified through voting will be developed further for publication and be positioned for potential funding. Attendees will stay connected to this work through the drafting and editing of an article describing the group's work, as well as during the pursuit of potential funding opportunities.
