SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background ODPHP is a program office within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Office of the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). ODPHP was established by Congress in 1976 with a mission to provide leadership for disease prevention and health promotion efforts for all Americans.

This group is living and working longer, redefining later life, and enriching our communities and society in new and vital ways. Improvements in the delivery of preventive services and care coordination, and a greater understanding of the social, environmental and emotional factors that influence health in the later years of life could help reduce health care costs and improve quality of life for older Americans. Preparing regional public health and aging services leaders, to ensure that our public health system is equipped to PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 support the unique health needs of older Americans, is of utmost importance. To further address the health needs of Americans as they age, ODPHP organized Healthy Aging Summits in 2015 and 2018. The Summits provided an opportunity to share the state-of-the-science in healthy aging, identify knowledge gaps, promote prevention and support livable communities for aging in place. Following the Summits, one-day national workshops convened state aging directors and state health officers to develop state-level priorities and action plans to promote healthy aging. The 2018 workshop expanded convened both state and local public health leaders to explore issues affecting older adults. Building on the Healthy People model, ODPHP projects use a socialdeterminants-of-health (SDOH) framework to strengthen public health. The framework calls for looking at upstream conditions that impact health. The SDOH framework was adapted to each of the Summits through the conference tracks which included: Maximizing Quality of Life, Social and Community Context, Health and Health Care, and Neighborhood and Built Environment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    ODPHP is a program office within the Office of the Assistant 
Secretary for Health (OASH), Office of the Secretary of the U.S. 
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). ODPHP was established by 
Congress in 1976 with a mission to provide leadership for disease 
prevention and health promotion efforts for all Americans. To promote 
the health of the country, ODPHP sets national health goals and 
supports programs, services, and educational activities. ODPHP leads 
Healthy People 2020/2030, Dietary Guidelines for Americans, Physical 
Activity Guidelines for Americans, National Clinical Care Commission, 
National Youth Sports Strategy, President's Council on Sports, Fitness 
and Nutrition, and healthfinder.gov.
    The percentage of the population age 65 or older in the United 
States is growing. It is estimated that by 2050, 20.9% of the 
population will be over age 65, compared to 13.7% in 2012. This group 
is living and working longer, redefining later life, and enriching our 
communities and society in new and vital ways. Improvements in the 
delivery of preventive services and care coordination, and a greater 
understanding of the social, environmental and emotional factors that 
influence health in the later years of life could help reduce health 
care costs and improve quality of life for older Americans.
    Preparing regional public health and aging services leaders, to 
ensure that our public health system is equipped to support the unique 
health needs of older Americans, is of utmost importance. To further 
address the health needs of Americans as they age, ODPHP organized 
Healthy Aging Summits in 2015 and 2018. The Summits provided an 
opportunity to share the state-of-the-science in healthy aging, 
identify knowledge gaps, promote prevention and support livable 
communities for aging in place. Following the Summits, one-day national 
workshops convened state aging directors and state health officers to 
develop state-level priorities and action plans to promote healthy 
aging. The 2018 workshop expanded convened both state and local public 
health leaders to explore issues affecting older adults.
    Building on the Healthy People model, ODPHP projects use a social-
determinants-of-health (SDOH) framework to strengthen public health. 
The framework calls for looking at upstream conditions that impact 
health. The SDOH framework was adapted to each of the Summits through 
the conference tracks which included: Maximizing Quality of Life, 
Social and Community Context, Health and Health Care, and Neighborhood 
and Built Environment.
