Session Description: This course provides an introduction to the basic concepts of population health, and in particular challenges faced by employers.

Initiating outreach directly to the employer community to convey the value of physical therapist led efforts in reducing future overall health care costs and morbidity will be outlined. An overview of the potential challenges and pitfalls in establishing employer based programs is also presented.
