Questions addressed included: Can this focus on the new public health be sustained in light of budget constraints on the federal, state, and local levels? How does the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) relate to public health and prevention activities? How are resources in the $15 billion Public Health and Prevention Fund, set up under the ACA, being deployed?
