PWE1 - Transforming Challenges into Opportunities: Innovating for Change and Health Equity (in-person only)


Feb 16, 2022 10:00am ‐ Feb 16, 2022 11:45am


Description

Born out of a grassroots movement, community health centers have been embedded in the communities they serve from the very beginning. They’ve cultivated extensive networks and partnerships — spanning school districts, housing agencies, food banks, and more — to develop inventive fixes to local challenges. Consumer-majority boards serve an important role in ensuring the health center meets the needs of the community.   While community health centers have a central role in serving the needs of the community, there is much more we can do to advance health equity. “Human-centered design” is an approach to problem-solving that is rooted in understanding people’s needs and experiences. It can be an effective approach for community health centers that are committed to advancing fair, just, and inclusive care for all. How might we continue to grow the culture of innovation to achieve even greater health equity for our communities? Join NACHC’s Center for Community Health Innovation and the Center for Care Innovations for this workshop. Together, we will explore key tools and mindsets to drive lasting change. Participants will learn how to co-design solutions that elevate health equity and the health center model in their communities.
