The Affordable Care Act has created a requirement for healthcare leaders to think differently, to learn a public health lexicon and to reach outside of hospital walls for new allies and collaborations. Public health and community development practitioners and leaders are realizing the need to redouble their efforts to improve the health and socioeconomic conditions in communities by understanding the complex relationships between community issues such as food access, employment, housing, and health.
These sectors are now in a position to align their strategies to effectively move the needle on community well-being. This one day working conference is designed for health care and community leadership interested in accessing and developing the tools necessary to improve community benefit, develop community collaboratives, support an effective Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) process, and respond to the requirements of an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model.
In this one day working conference, attendees will learn from national leaders and engage in facilitated dialogue and workshops to improve their community prevention skill sets.
