Healthy People, Healthy Places Webinar Series
Talking about Healthy People in Healthy Places: Linking Values to Policy and Environmental Change. For most people in the U.S., the starting point for change of any kind is the individual. But when audiences are reminded early in the communication of the influence environments have on health, they are receptive to messages about policies that can change those environments. Panelists will discuss language and techniques that can help participants link environmental conditions to policy change.
11:00-12:00pm PST (1:00 – 2:00pm CST; 2:00-3:00 EST).
People are healthy when the places they live in support health. The systems that shape communities can all affect health. Some communities’ systems are broken and so don’t allow residents to lead healthy lives and prosper. Changing that will require collaboration from an informed, passionate, fair-minded group working across multiple fields. With this belief, the Convergence Partnership is launching a 5-part webinar series to lift up various activities, strategies and resources aimed at creating healthy and safe environments for all. We hope that you will join us on these webinars to learn from others as well as share your wisdom and experiences in working towards reducing inequities, promoting cross-sector and multi-field partnerships, and stimulating action for policy change.
