Population Health Forum is an organization of health activists originally launched at the University of Washington, raises awareness of, promotes dialogue about, and explores how political, economic and social inequalities interact to reduce the overall health status of our society. We host forums, sponsor discussions, develop curriculum, teach courses, sponsor workshops, and provide speakers to promote knowledge and to advocate for action in service of a healthier society.
