ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia is hosting a public health conference to tackle health care in the state.

The university's College of Public Health's second annual State of Public Health Conference is set for Thursday at the Classic Center in Athens. It aims to bring together the state's public health professionals, elected officials, policymakers, academics and business leaders to craft a plan to improve Georgia's public health outcomes.

Workshops will be held on a variety of key public health issues, including public health implications of the Affordable Care Act and public health leadership through collective impact strategies to worksite wellness, risk communication and breast cancer genomics.

The event is geared toward public health professionals but is open to the general public.
