Team Up, Take Action: A Conference on Partnering to Improve Community Health: Building Bridges Between Community and Healthcare
The Challenge of Community Health and Wellness
Mental health, substance use, aging, chronic disease, and access to care are enduring health issues of particular concern to rural and isolated Northern New England communities. While the health issues have not changed significantly in the past decade, collective thinking about how to reduce health disparities and improve outcomes has evolved. Increasingly, community residents as well as health system and public health professionals are recognizing the important role of cross-sector partnerships in leveraging the full range of factors that contribute to health such as housing, transportation, food, education, exercise, employment, social relationships, and health care.
About Team Up, Take Action
Now in its fourth year, the Team Up, Take Action conference convenes public health and health care professionals, community activists, and health advocates to advance best practices and to build collective capacity to improve health and health equity through partnership. The 2019 conference theme is Building Bridges between Communities and Healthcare. What makes for successful partnerships between clinical health care providers, public health systems, and community stakeholders? What are the essential strategic skills for leading partnerships? What are the tough challenges in integrating clinical and community systems that are focused on disease prevention and improve health outcomes for all? What can we learn from others who are building partnerships in different settings? What policy changes can help to facilitate strong partnerships in the future? What practices and approaches to organizational development and collaboration can best promote inclusion of all?
