State Healthy People 2010 Plans and Implementation Strategies

One of the successes of Healthy People 2010 is the strong partnership with various groups through the Healthy People Consortium. This session features state partners of the Consortium. The session will begin with an overview of the states' history of developing Healthy People 2000 plans and their current stage of 2010 development. A listing of state Healthy People 2010 activities, releases, and public meetings will be distributed at the session. The session will then discuss the Healthy People Tool On-Line Library. The materials for the online-library are organized under the "action areas" in the Healthy People 2010 Toolkit. They include items such as chapter review checklists, sample legislation, facilitator guidelines, steering committee surveys and vision statements. The session will focus on the development of Healthy People plans in three states: Vermont, California and West Virginia. Representative will discuss how they worked with internal and external advisory groups, established targets, pursued the goal of eliminating health disparities, nurtured diverse partnerships, aligned with other health initiatives in their states, and how they identified specific action steps for meeting their state's objectives
