Register Now—Summertime: Sun, Sand, and Support for Prevention Needed Now!
It's summer time, and as we enjoy the outdoors, beaches, and warm summer nights, members of Congress will also be coming home for the August Recess. As champions for prevention, we know that this is a critical time to engage congressional leadership and show them how the Prevention and Public Health Fund is working in their communities right now. Please join us for an upcoming Dialogue4Health Webforum on July 24 from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm PST, co-hosted by Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute and Trust for America’s Health, where we'll provide the information, tools, and resources to help you do just that.
We'll hear from Senator Harkin's staff who will talk about recent efforts on the Hill to support the Prevention Fund, and share what some Community Transformation Grant (CTG) communities are doing to educate their lawmakers. We will also discuss strategies you can use this August Recess to engage members of Congress directly and through media advocacy in order to to educate them about how their communities are already benefitting from the Prevention and Public Health Fund.
- Andi Fristedt, Health Policy Advisor for the Senate HELP Committee: Will discuss current efforts on the Hill relative to the Prevention and Public Health Fund and needed support from partners back home.
- Kathleen MacGuire, Program Coordinator for Tacoma-Pierce County CTG: Will share what they are doing to educate their lawmakers about the CTG efforts.
- Sue Polis, External Relations and Outreach Director for Trust for America's Health: Will discuss strategies to engage members of Congress over the August Recess to educate them about how their communities are benefiting from the Prevention and Public Health Fund.
- Lily Swartz, Communications Coordinator at Prevention Institute: Will explore how to make the case for prevention using new and traditional media advocacy strategies.
- Matthew Marsom, Vice President for Public Health Institute: Moderator.
