Program:
Changes are taking place rapidly across the healthcare landscape. Out of these changes, a framework focused on population health is emerging that will have a profound impact on healthcare and psychological practice. Importantly, this framework provides many opportunities for practicing psychologists. This presentation will highlight how psychologists are uniquely qualified to capitalize on these changes. Moreover, this presentation will illustrate how a population health framework better enables psychologists and other behavioral health professionals to reach underserved populations and help diverse groups with unaddressed behavioral health needs. This morning program will provide 1.5 CEs.

Objectives:
1) Define a population-based approach to health care delivery.
2) Determine ways in which psychological science and practice can contribute to a population health approach.
3) Describe how a population-based framework enables behavioral health professionals to reach diverse, underserved populations.
