2021 National Health Research Forum: Fighting Health Threats Faster

Event Date: 
Monday, September 13, 2021 to Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Join Research!America for the 2021 Virtual National Health Research Forum, Straight Talk: Fighting Health Threats Faster. For more than ten years, the National Health Research Forum has gathered top federal officials, leadership from across our broad membership, and distinguished national media to take an unvarnished look at issues that are vital to the wellbeing of our nation, our economy, and patients in the U.S. and across the globe. 

September 13-15, 2021

COVID-19 prompted a remarkable acceleration in research and development focused on the tests, treatments, and vaccines needed to combat the pandemic. The response showed that faster progress is possible.  At the same time, COVID-19 exposed challenges that reach beyond the pandemic to hinder medical and public health progress broadly.

Fighting health threats faster means:

  • finding and seizing opportunities to uncover and translate new knowledge into viable medical and public health advances; and
  • defining and removing roadblocks that slow progress or impede that progress from being leveraged to benefit all.

Advancing these objectives is a daunting prospect, but if the sense of urgency and resolve that has driven progress against COVID-19 can be applied to other health threats, we can maximize the healthy lifespan of all people, regardless of their race, gender, age, or life circumstances.
