Post From Network Commons
Watch the recording of the Build Healthy Places Network’s March 25, 2021 Network Commons, where Renae Badruzzaman from BHPN and Jen Lewis-Walden from Shift Health Accelerator introduced the Healthy Neighborhood Investments: A Policy Scan & Strategy Map.
On the March 25th Network Commons, Bobby Milstein from ReThink Health provided an overview to the Thriving Together Springboard that was used as a fundamental framework for the Policy Scan. The Policy Scan & Strategy Map operationalized the Springboard, by adding federal, state, and local policies that have potential impact for health and racial equity within the vital conditions. This process was informed by a 38-member Policy Council.
Featured speakers included:
Audiences learned about belonging and civic muscle as a priority vital condition to advancing health and racial equity. Through a moderated discussion, the featured speakers shared the impact that policy has on health and explored the roles that multi-sector coalitions, healthcare systems, community development organizations, community leaders, and policy makers can take to promote policy change that advances health and racial equity and cross-sector healthy neighborhood investments.
