Since its launch in December 2010, Healthy People 2020 has been supporting the achievement of a broad set of national objectives for improving the health of all Americans based on a 10-year schedule set to conclude in year 2020. Healthy People 2020 is comprised of 42 topic areas and nearly 600 objectives in total.

In an effort to keep readers connected with the program’s initiatives and offer relevant, up-to-date information, Healthy People 2020 hosts one or more monthly webinars, each focused on various current leading health issues. In May, Healthy People 2020 hosted two webinars, “Who’s Leading the Leading Health Indicators? Webinar: Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity” (the archived video is not yet available) and “A Spotlight on LGBT Health: Transgender Health Issues.” June webinars have not yet been announced.
