Webinar: A bipartisan vision for advancing community prevention: Communicating stories and successes to influence local and national change
September 20, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
About this Webinar
Over the last decade, public health practitioners, health educators and community advocates have successfully engaged in multiple efforts to create healthier and more equitable neighborhoods. Despite this progress, deep financial cuts to prevention and public health pose threats to our communities’ basic health and social needs. Now more than ever, it is crucial to work together to elevate and communicate community prevention successes that advance health equity as a critical imperative.
This webinar will ground participants in approaches that support healthy and equitable communities, and highlight opportunities to advance comprehensive prevention efforts through policy change.
Participants will learn about effective communication approaches for engaging local and federal stakeholders, and discuss strategies for effective story telling that will continue building momentum for prevention and public health initiatives.
