Presented by the Community Health Training Institute: A Brand New Online Training!
Join us for this online training, led by Health Resources in Action's Mo Barbosa!
Topics: Strategies for aligning stakeholders and communities to promote HE and building a common language.
Online training (1.5 hrs)
Description: Public health and community health workers cannot address the social determinants of health alone. Factors like housing, education, employment, access to nutritious food, and more can only be improved through collaboration with partners at the local, state, and federal level along with private sector partnerships. What does it look like when the interests of diverse stakeholders and communities are aligned for the promotion of health equity? In this training, we will go over examples of what these partnerships can look like and how health equity work is strengthened when we work together. Participants will walk away with strategies for addressing health equity with a common language framework and engaging health equity champions to address our communities’ most pressing issues.
Audience: Coalition leaders and partners; individuals working towards community health and health equity.
Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to:
1. Define what a cross sector partnership looks like for their work.
2. Explain the value of developing partnerships and cross-sector relationships to promote health equity.
3. Examine the role of public health in activating cross sector partnerships.
Trainers: Mo Barbosa (Health Resources in Action), and Lori Lobenstine, Design Studio for Social Intervention
