Efforts to dismantle and undermine the Affordable Care Act, and the community prevention provisions in particular, are increasing. The American Public Health Association, PolicyLink, Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute and Trust for America's Health invite you to join a discussion concerning how community, public health and healthcare leaders can take focused action to protect community prevention building up to the March anniversary of passage of the Affordable Care Act.

The Web Forum will:

  • Provide concrete action steps that community advocates can take to support and protect community prevention and the Affordable Care Act;
  • Discuss strategies that individuals and organizations can use to describe the value and benefit of investing resources in community prevention and wellness in local communities;
  • Share an update from Senator Harkin’s office on threats to community prevention within HR1 and outline actions needed to educate Congress on the importance of the Affordable Care Act;
  • Provide a prioritized list of target legislators that advocates can contact to make the case for prevention.

Sponsored by American Public Health Association, PolicyLink, Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute and Trust for America's Health

Teaching Prevention: Strategies for applying prevention in an academic setting

The paradigm is shifting. Future health leaders must go beyond treating disease and injury; they must understand how to prevent it in the first place.  Prevention Institute invites you to join us for a unique webinar sharing strategies for infusing prevention thinking into diverse curricula—from public health and policy to medicine.

Tuesday, March 22
12pm-1:15pm PST
The hosts, along with presenter Vivian Chavez, are editors of Prevention is Primary: Strategies for Community Well-Being, the highly successful public health textbook co-published by Wiley/Jossey-Bass and APHA, now in its second edition. The panel’s combined experience in prevention training, curricular development, and teaching will provide you with the tools to build the case for primary prevention and incorporate it into your courses. You will be able to engage future health leaders and build their capacity to think of solutions that solve multiple problems.
