   Nav Persaud, MD, MSc, BA, BSc
   Scientist, Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute

This plenary session will address how screening interventions that can address health inequities including those that address the social determinants of health rather than the management of diseases. We will explore how specific recommended interventions can promote or undermine health equity. We will also discuss a randomized controlled trial of free essential medicine distribution was co-designed by a community guidance panel and conducted in a PBRN, and how the design and preliminary results of the trial can be used to help inform public policy in a way that promotes health equity.

   Plenary II: Prevention and Value
   John W Epling, Jr, MD, MSEd
   Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine

The US Preventive Services Task force recommends evidence-based clinical preventive services to improve the health of all Americans.  Prevention should be a foundation of comprehensive primary care, but instead finds itself competing for the attention of clinicians with relative value units, disease management metrics and the chaos of our medical record-keeping and information systems.  Challenges to the integration of prevention include the emphasis on metric-driven healthcare, the increasing complexity of preventive service recommendations, and the long-term perspective required to recognize the gain from prevention. The role of the USPSTF in creating evidence-based recommendations and supporting dissemination and implementation efforts will be reviewed. With a combination of realism, creativity and optimism, we can imagine the solutions for preserving and enhancing the importance of clinical prevention in our health care system.
