A Conversation With John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH, FACOEM, Commissioner, Tennessee Department of Health, pt. 2

by Justin B. Moore, PhD, MS

In late 2016, I began a conversation with Tennessee Commissioner of Health, John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH, FACOEM to discuss his Primary Prevention Initiative. As he describes in this second installment of a three-part interview, the Tennessee Department of Health seeks to become “a recognized and trusted leader, partnering and engaging to accelerate Tennessee into one of the nation’s healthiest states.”

Be sure to read his commentary “The Big Four: Using Primary Prevention to Drive Population Health,” which appears in the new issue of the Journal of Public Health Management & Practice, and watch the first segment of our conversation here, as well.
