Join PI at the 2017 American Public Health Association meeting this weekend

Join Prevention Institute at the 2017 American Public Health Association (APHA) meeting in Atlanta from November 4 - 8. The theme of this year's meeting is "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Climate Changes Health." We look forward to seeing colleagues new and old at the annual APHA conference. 

We’ll be participating in two sessions during the conference, and look forward to connecting with you: 

Understanding and Addressing Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience in the Context of Climate Change

The Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience framework -- developed by PI with support  from Kaiser Permanente -- examines community trauma, shares multi-sector strategies for healing, and advances the understanding that responding to trauma requires trauma-informed care and strategies to change community conditions. PI’s Ruben Cantu will be presenting, with some of PI’s key partners. 

Time: Monday, November 6, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: Georgia World Congress Center B403

Making Connections among Men and Boys: Preventing Suicide in the Context of Rapidly Changing Social Environments

This session will explore a collaborative process for identifying community mental health needs, and how sites are working with diverse populations and coalitions to implement community-driven strategies that improve outcomes, enhance wellness, and build resilience among men and boys. This session shares learnings from our Making Connections initiative, funded by The Movember Foundation. PI will be presenting, with representatives from some of the Making Connections communities.  

Time: Monday, November 6, 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM 

Location: Georgia World Congress Center A315
