Meetings and Workshops February 9, 2022 The forum hosted its winter meeting virtually, where discussions focused on health care worker mental health, resiliency, and the future of work as a potential focus area for the forum for 2022. Forum members began the process of defining the specific topics they would like to explore and strategized about how to further refine their focus on this broad and complex topic at their summer meeting. The forum also heard from representatives from the Johns Hopkins University Health System and the University of Maryland Medical System about the implementation of CSC in the state during the winter 2021–2022 COVID-19 surge. Forum members were also briefed about the success of a project in Upper Pine, Colorado, to use EMT paramedics to facilitate access to monoclonal antibody infusions in rural communities. Issues of access in rural and remote communities were also explored as a focus area. May 17‒18, 2022 The forum conducted its first in-person public workshop since February 2020, Lessons Learned from COVID-19 for the Public Health Emergency Enterprise: What Happened to the Plans?, held May 17–18 in Washington, DC. The workshop brought together approximately 75 forum members, speakers, and other subject-matter experts in person and more than 1,300 participants online for 2 days of presentations and interactive discussions. Following the workshop, the National Academies’ peer review and publication process evaluated the proceedings from the workshop and published it in the fall of 2022. July 18‒19, 2022 The forum’s summer meeting consisted of a broad agenda including debriefs on recent workshops; updates on various current public health emergencies, including mpox, wildfires, and COVID-19; exploration of topics focused on the current and future public health and health care workforce; National Academies’ and forum members’ activities of interests; and briefings on potential topics for the coming year. A half-day of the summer meeting was also spent in closed session focused on strategic planning for the forum and topic prioritization to assist in the development of the 2023 workplan and beyond. October 20‒21, 2022 The forum’s fall meeting was held in a hybrid format in October 2022. It consisted of a broad agenda including briefings on new initiatives by a variety of federal partners. The discussions covered the current state of the application of the Incident Command System to health care and public health response, a presentation on futures thinking and foresight followed by an application activity, and a review and finalization of the forum workplan. 2022 Annual Report  |  5
