Promoting health capital is central to Trust for America & # 39; s Health (TFAH) work to maintain optimal health for everyone and the community.
As part of this effort, TFAH is launching a four-part series in a web forum called "Taking Action to Promote Health Equality" – Using Lessons from Cutting Practices to Improve Health and Wellbeing. Our goal is to shine a bright light on some of the most compelling and engaging activities that help to achieve equality in healthcare. Program speakers will share their lessons learned through practices and experiences that can be transferred to different community settings – large or small, urban or rural – and with significant or minimal resources. And while some of the examples may be familiar, the Web Forum series will include excellent work that has not received much national attention.
TFAH designs the series so that you can participate in all four web forums or anyone you want to attend. And when the series is over, they will be available online. Each segment is planned with considerable time for questions and answers. In addition, if participants identify topics of additional interest, TFAH will use this information to plan future web forums.
The series will be hosted by J. Nadine Gracia, MD, MSCE, TFAH Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, and will be featured through the Dialogue4Health platform. The first web forum of the series will analyze the impact of an unprecedented initiative to build healthy communities in California. This multi-year, $ 1 billion effort across 14 California communities has shown what can be achieved with long-term, community-based, place-based campaigns. Participants in the discussion will provide a broad overview of the initiative, highlight two community examples, and provide audience members with strategies and tools they can use to achieve health equity in their work and communities.
