New publication and upcoming webinar feature state-driven initiatives to advance community prevention and health
Prevention Institute is proud to release our latest report, The Intersection of Health Services & Community Environments: 8 Profiles of State-Driven Initiatives to Advance Population Health, which highlights states that are leading and supporting comprehensive efforts to strengthen community health by keeping people healthy, in the first place. The profiles complement our work on how Community-Centered Health Homes can bridge the gap between health services and community prevention, and were prepared in response to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s growing interest in the important role of states in facilitating these efforts.

These strategies will also be described in an upcoming webinar, to be held Monday, July 2nd from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm PT. The webinar will discuss the new publication, and feature states that are changing community environments to improve population health and wellbeing. Speakers include state representatives who will share relevant experiences and lessons learned, and PI staff Jeremy Cantor & Rea Pañares. Register today to learn more about how state governments can serve as natural testing grounds, catalysts, and leaders in developing new models, systems, and partnerships that will elevate coordinated prevention, support safe and healthy communities, and save money and lives.
