The Role of Community Partners in Community-Based Public Health

Tuesday, November 5, 2013: 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Community stakeholders play a vital role in developing, implementing, and sustaining health-promoting infrastructure, resources, and programs within communities. The purpose of this session is to emphasize the unique and critical role of community stakeholders in collaborative partnerships that have sought to improve community health and well-being. Presentations will showcase thoughtful and innovative community-driven efforts to improve social, economic, and environmental conditions, enhance access to and quality of health care, and engage in coalition building and research efforts to investigate and address health disparities.
Session Objectives: Discuss ways to engage and involve residents, planners, leaders, policymakers and decisionmakers in community public health related issues. Define how various community groups and health councils can collaborate to build capacity and strengthen efforts to advance health equity. Identify ways community-based participatory research (CBPR) can move from deficit and problem-focused inquiry toward asset and capability-focused research and practice. Discuss concrete strategies for activities that promote youth leadership and youth-led change efforts in schools and communities.
