What is Prevention?
The word prevention is frequently used in the healthcare profession, but what does prevention really mean when it comes to healthcare? Does it actually improve patient, population, and community level outcomes? Or does it improve the standard of care in behavioral health and primary care?

For behavioral and physical healthcare professionals to incorporate prevention into integrated healthcare nationwide, we need to learn how to:
- Promote conditions and plan services that improve the quality of life for individuals and communities.
- Meet the needs of diverse populations.
- Educate future providers.
- Succinctly outline and measure the benefits of a newly developed paradigm.
These are the topics that we will address during three (3) days of plenary sessions, panel discussions, and workshops concentrated in four tracks: (1) policy initiatives; (2) clinical practice; (3) administration and implementation; and (4) research, evaluation, and education.
