Prevention Institute E-Alert: June 3, 2016

Last training in 2016 statewide Health Equity and Prevention series

We’ve spent the past six months traveling the state -- from conducting a leadership training with youth advocates in far-south Imperial County to developing community-based approaches to mental health in far-north Humboldt County. What we’ve seen gives us tremendous hope for our state’s future, and we’re excited for our next stop: Sacramento.

Prevention Institute’s Building Collaboration for Primary Prevention training is made possible with generous support from The California Endowment’s Health ExChange Academy. We invite you to join us (at no-cost) to explore action-oriented tools and practical strategies you can use to build effective, multi-sector collaboratives to improve community health, safety, and equity.

Ensuring a healthy future for all residents, and particularly for low-income communities and communities of color, requires collaboration across sectors. No one organization, agency, or sector can do it alone. But collaboration is not always easy. Who should be at the table? How do we move beyond information-sharing to developing joint strategies and achieving shared outcomes? How do we sustain collective approaches over time?

Join practitioners, advocates, and community leaders on June 15 in Sacramento to address these questions and learn more about cutting-edge work to establish effective multi-sector collaboration as a key strategy in community prevention efforts.

Participants will discuss opportunities to engage multiple sectors, departments and agencies that are essential to advancing health and safety.

    Through community case studies, facilitated discussion, and interactive activities using Prevention Institute’s Collaboration Multiplier tool, participants will learn how to: build buy-in for shared work, make the best use of people’s time and collective efforts, develop action-oriented joint strategies, and sustain effective collaborations over time.

We look forwarding to seeing you there!
