Event Information

The NIH Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) is hosting a virtual Pathways to Prevention (P2P) workshop "Identifying Risks and Interventions to Optimize Postpartum Health." This virtual event will take place from November 29–December 1, 2022. Speakers in this workshop will assess the scientific evidence on predicting and preventing poor postpartum health outcomes. After the workshop, an independent panel will draft a report outlining evidence gaps and priorities for future research. 

The purpose of the P2P program is to understand the current state of the science, identify research gaps, and suggest an action plan for fields with broad public health importance but limited or underdeveloped research. Each P2P workshop is one step in a structured process that takes approximately 2 to 3 years to complete. The ODP provides leadership, support, funding, and coordination for the program. Partners from across the NIH, other federal agencies, content-area experts, and community members help plan each workshop.
