We are at an inflection point in assuring the strength of the systems that underlay the health and well-being of the American public. Even as resources are tight and polarization is rife — there is a clearer understanding of what works and is what is needed to improve population-level outcomes. As multiple concurrent crises and tangled threats persist – how can we lay the foundation for an equitable recovery and resilience over time? Do we want to go ‘back to normal’ and who benefits/loses from that; or is the vision something quite different? How can we shape dose-sufficient investments in community health and well-being in these unprecedented times. To become a healthy, thriving community, multiple vital conditions must be in place for all to access. These vital conditions, though in part supported by national work, require investments, policy and practice changes at the local level. Watch to learn how deliberate engagement of communities via authentic partnerships can result in improved health outcomes.
