Breakout Session: Bidirectional Financing Strategies for Community Health Improvement 05-21-2014 Rachel Miller, Public Health Solutions (PHS); Catherine C. Shoults, Jennifer Woodward, and Gianfranco Pezzino, Kansas Health Institute (KHI) This session explores opportunities for public health institutes (PHIs) to serve as funding intermediaries for federal, city, and state partners. This session also discusses the key position of PHIs to deliver effective, relevant, and timely technical assistance to local health departments (LHDs) when resources are scarce and barriers to improving services are difficult to overcome. Jennifer Woodward, Gianfranco Pezzino, and Catherine Shoults from Kansas Health Institute (KHI) discuss the key position that PHIs occupy to provide technical assistance to LHDs and promote the use of quality improvement (QI) approaches. KHI developed a competitive process for LHDs to examine barriers to immunizations in their communities and promote the development of local immunization coalitions. "Mini-grants" supported activities addressing a specific issue identified by the applicant. KHI discusses the possible advantages of this approach, including improved ability for LHDs to apply for future competitive grantees and adopt QI techniques on an ongoing basis. Rachel Miller from Public Health Solutions (PHS) discusses the possible funding intermediary role for PHIs to subcontract with community-based hospitals, clinics, social services and research organizations, and government entities, getting contracts and money to service providers quickly, monitoring compliance with funder requirements, developing innovative reimbursement models and information systems, and preparing reports for local and federal funders. PHS, based in New York City, has been a “master contractor” for city and state government for public health funding sources—from HIV/AIDS, to family planning, to emergency preparedness. Ms. Miller shares PHS’s experiences in re-granting government funds and solicits stories from others engaged in similar efforts, identifying new opportunities, challenges, and best practices.

Breakout Session: Cacophony to Symphony: Creating Harmony in Health Priorities 05-21-2014 Kevin Barnett and Reginauld Jackson, Public Health Institute (California); Bridget Booske Catlin and Karen Timberlake, University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (UWPHI) The Affordable Care Act’s enhanced community benefit provisions, requiring hospitals to conduct community health needs assessments and implement strategies related to at least one priority area, have increased the engagement of hospitals across the country in understanding and acting on population health improvement priorities. There are several opportunities for public health institutes (PHIs) to support alignment on population health goals. Alignment should also include stakeholders such as United Ways, Community Action Agencies, and Community Health Centers, all of which conduct assessments and have a charge to focus in specific communities. This session explores two PHI solutions to supporting the development of shared metrics and population health improvement goals between hospitals, local health departments, and other community partners. Kevin Barnett and Reginauld Jackson from Public Health Institute (California) share a set of online tools intended for use by a broad spectrum of stakeholders, findings from a national study, and a current dissemination and technical assistance process underway across the country. The tools, study, and current dissemination/technical assistance process is supported by a cooperative agreement between NNPHI and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Karen Timberlake and Bridget Booske Catlin at the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute share their work supporting greater collaboration among organizations (health care systems and local health departments) through collecting all Wisconsin hospital and local health department community health needs assessments and coding the identified priorities. By building awareness of shared health priorities and sharing details as to implementation strategies, these PHIs are working to strengthen the reach, impact, and effectiveness of multi-sectoral health improvement initiatives on the local, state, and national level.

Breakout Session: Investing in Shared Infrastructure for an Accountable Care Community: Three-Year Results from the Crescent City Beacon Community 05-21-2014 2014 NNPHI Annual Conference breakout session Investing in Shared Infrastructure for an Accountable Care Community: Three-Year Results from the Crescent City Beacon Community Anjum Khurshid, Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) The Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) was the only public health entity to lead one of the 17 Beacon Communities funded by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) in 2010. The goal of the program was to demonstrate how health information technology (HIT) may lead to improvements in population health. The Crescent City Beacon Community (CCBC) implemented this three-year program by focusing on developing the right infrastructure to position its health care system to become accountable for outcomes. As the Affordable Care Act implementation introduces new reimbursement models, and as private insurance plans move to value-based purchasing, the experiences of CCBC regarding challenges and successes are useful for other communities and public health entities, as setting up this infrastructure requires a true collaboration between public health and health care systems. This session explores concepts of accountable care communities and the role of public health and health care systems. This session also discusses the challenges in prioritizing the right infrastructure for creating accountable health systems. LPHI shares results from its three-year Beacon Community program in Louisiana and its future impact. LPHI No

Roundtable:Engaging Community Clinics in Teen Pregnancy Prevention Research: A Fragile Balance Between Capacity and Need 05-20-2014 2014 NNPHI Annual Conference. Engaging Community Clinics in Teen Pregnancy Prevention Research: A Fragile Balance Between Capacity and Need. Jennifer Dickherber and Marsha Broussard, Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) To adequately assess adolescent health care needs, researchers must identify ideal settings to reach them. There are generally three types of clinic service providers in Greater New Orleans (GNO) delivering adolescent health care: hospitals, schools-based health centers (SHBCs), and community clinics. This presentation discusses what the Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) has learned over the past three years conducting research in community clinics in GNO. Its successes and challenges aim to inform colleagues interested in implementing similar clinic-based interventions. Due to obstacles encountered in the pilot year of programming, LPHI developed a comprehensive list of eligibility criteria for successful implementation in clinic settings. This worksite expectations checklist is a resource that can be adapted for various interventions and geographic regions to assess the capacity of pre-existing infrastructure. Lastly, in order to share best practices across regions, participants have the opportunity to develop and compare ideas for effective clinic engagement for current and future projects. LPHI No
Roundtable:Partnering for Population Health: Exploring Resources, Tools, and Strategies for Successful Public Health and Health Care Collaboration 05-20-2014 2014 NNPHI Annual Conference. Partnering for Population Health: Exploring Resources, Tools, and Strategies for Successful Public Health and Health Care Collaboration Elizabeth Foley, MCD Public Health Public health institutes have a unique role to play in fostering better health by acting as translators, brokers, and trainers. Traditional public health programs and their staffs look at the world through a population health lens and do not often understand how to approach—much less work with—health care providers and systems. Even the most progressive health care providers and systems have difficulty moving beyond the patient in the room and considering their entire patient panel or community. Organizations such as the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, National Association of Chronic Disease Directors, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have created tools and resources to assist public health practitioners and health care providers in understanding each other’s language and bridging their divide. This interactive workshop explores these various tools, shares effective strategies and lessons learned, and showcases how to engage partners on both sides and work collaboratively to impact population health.

Many states are beginning to show improvements in infant health outcomes associated with discouraging this practice through the use of a variety of policy interventions. This session explores the strategic partnerships developed and highlights the important lessons learned by those who have tested these strategies in order to improve poor birth outcomes. C4MHP No
Roundtable: Healthy Maine Streets: New Partner, Challenging Niche 05-20-2014 2014 Annual NNPHI Conference. Healthy Maine Streets: New Partner, Challenging Niche Kala Ladenheim and Kathleen E. Perkins, MCD Public Health Employees of very small (<20 employees) businesses have notoriously poor access to coverage; wellness is also rarely offered to this population. MCD Public Health partnered with the Maine Development Foundation, an economic development organization with a robust local infrastructure, in an innovative model: place-based worksite wellness. Wellness opportunities for employees leveraged changes—farmer’s markets, menu changes, walk and bike connections, improved breathability, and health-conscious celebrations—for all who use the downtown. With 19 participating towns, Healthy Maine Streets is successfully wiring health into downtown development and creating advocates and enthusiasts among downtown cultural leaders—the businesses that are the face of small towns and neighborhoods. The experience has been rewarding for both organizations. The team consists of peers working together at several levels—including directors, field managers, and community partners—with precedence given to the community development frame overall and the public health model in the details of specific project activities.

Poster: Innovative Strategies for Reducing the Burden of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease: Lessons learned from the Crescent City Beacon Community (CCBC) Initiative 05-19-2014 Heather Farb and Alexandra Priebe, Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) The Crescent City Beacon Community (CCBC) Initiative focused on reducing the burden of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the Greater New Orleans area by engaging primary care practices in clinical transformation using a patient-centered medical home model. CCBC partnered with the Primary Care Delivery Corporation (PCDC) to establish a learning community and assign a coach to each community health center. A mixed methods evaluation offers valuable insight for public health institutes and public health systems partnerships attempting clinical transformation. This presentation describes some of the program design and implementation challenges from the health center and programmatic perspectives, as well as strategies employed to overcome these challenges. This presentation also shares lessons learned, including: narrowing the program focus, aligning interventions with quality improvement goals, addressing data quality, establishing change teams, sequencing interventions, having a learning collaborative approach, creating a sustainability strategy, and the need for project management. 2014 NNPHI Annual Conference LPHI No
Poster: The Role of Public Health Institutes in Improving Access to Quality Behavioral Health Services: Innovative Partnerships and Collaborations 05-19-2014 Jonathan Perry, Heather Farb, and Lisa Gentry, Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) Over the past several years, the Louisiana Public Health Institute’s (LPHI) behavioral health portfolio has grown substantially. As the Affordable Care Act and NCQA PCMH standards have increased emphasis on integrating behavioral health with primary care, community health providers are looking to LPHI to facilitate and guide their transformation process. To this end, LPHI is engaged in transforming two safety net behavioral health systems in Southern Louisiana. Key to the systems re-design is innovative partnerships and collaborations with national and local entities, such as the National Council for Behavioral Health and local provider collaborative task forces. Through these partnerships, LPHI has engaged multiple stakeholders—including government, health plans, and national experts—and created an opportunity to redesign the health system from multiple perspectives. This presentation discusses lessons learned from developing these partnerships and makes recommendations for other public health institutes interested in developing their Behavioral Health portfolios.

Poster: Universal Health Insurance Access Efforts in Massachusetts: Lessons Learned for Public Health Systems Across the U.S. 05-19-2014 Brittany Chen, Health Resources in Action (HRiA) There is speculation about how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) may impact public health and its organization, delivery, and outcomes at the state and local levels. The ACA was largely modeled after Massachusetts's (MA) 2006 landmark health care reform effort (“Chapter 58”). With parallels between MA and the ACA, MA’s lessons learned can inform the implementation of the ACA and its potential impact on the nation’s public health enterprise. Commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention via NNPHI, Health Resources in Action examined Chapter 58’s impact upon MA’s public health enterprise. Findings focus upon the impact of Chapter 58 on health care access, indicators, and outcomes; safety net services; public health programs; and the public health workforce. Findings also elucidate lessons learned and recommendations to inform ongoing implementation of the ACA, forecast effects on public health practice, and highlight opportunities to improve population health outcomes on a national scale.

Poster: What Health Quality Indicators Reveal About the Health Care System 05-19-2014 Amy Radican-Wald, Center for Mississippi Health Policy (C4MHP) Changes are occurring rapidly in health care. This dynamic environment provides an opportunity for public health practioners and partners to collaborate in order to ensure that these changes work in concert to shift the health care system toward prevention and primary care rather than continuing to manage the consequences of delayed care. This session provides information about the resources available to systematically gauge the status of preventive and primary health care systems, particularly during rapid health care system changes. Health system improvement initiatives in other states, ongoing work within the state of Mississippi, and the lessons learned by those who have tested health system performance improvement strategies are also covered during the session.

Poster: Creating a Data Bridge: Fostering Evidence-Based Decision Making through Interagency Partnerships 05-19-2014 Signe Shackelford, Center for Mississippi Health Policy (C4MHP) Mississippi’s efforts to reduce rates of unintentional drug poisoning deaths have been hampered by lack of data, as three-quarters of these deaths are attributed to unspecified drugs. In order to foster evidence-informed policymaking, the Center for Mississippi Health Policy (C4MHP) partnered with the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) Office of Vital Records, MSDH Division of Pharmacy, and the Mississippi State Board of Pharmacy's Prescription Monitoring Program (MSPMP) to facilitate a data match of de-identified MSPMP records with death records for individuals whose cause of death was classified as "unintentional drug overdose" in 2011. Results of the study provided vital information on the types of drugs used, prescribing and dispensing patterns, and payment sources, illustrating benefits of collecting and monitoring data trends in the future.

Poster: Tackling Access to Care Barriers from All Angles: Improving Population Health 05-19-2014 Anna Lyn Whitt and Kathy Khayat, Mississippi Public Health Institute (MPHI) Public health institutes (PHIs) are poised to convene unique partnerships to solve long-term challenges facing population health. Additionally, many PHIs across the country are acting as technical assistant agents to the public health accreditation process. Staff with the Mississippi Public Health Institute (MSPHI) used focus groups, rapid community assessment, and GIS mapping to assess community health in the Gulf Coast region of Mississippi, also known as the Mississippi State Department of Health, District IX. Access to primary health care services was identified as a major challenge in this region. MSPHI is collaborating with hospitals, businesses, the gaming industry, mental health, academia, and local public health programs to create solutions that can be implemented and sustained in District IX. This presentation illustrates the challenges identified, lessons learned, and plans to address access to care issues in the six-county region. This process is contributing to the public health accreditation exploration and application in Mississippi, as well as the community health and quality improvement plan that will be created for the accreditation process.

Poster: Exploring Collective Impact Opportunities 05-19-2014 Erin Harvey, Mississippi Public Health Institute The Mississippi Public Health Institute (MSPHI) used information and relationships from the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation planning grant to enter a Collective Impact Planning Phase for Attala county in Mississippi. The aim of the activities described was to fully understand the existing resources and capacity in each county. Through the planning grant, MSPHI selected this county because it exhibited readiness based on (1) having an operational EHR, (2) clinic leadership commitment, and (3) community engagement in health promotion and diabetes care/treatment. MSPHI worked with a primary care clinic, informants from the health department, community health center, faith-based organizations, and the communities to prioritize strategies to improve clinic-community engagement.

Poster: Assessing the Impact of Public Health Investments on Community Health Outcomes 05-19-2014 Anna P. Schenck, North Carolina Institute for Public Health, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health The North Carolina Institute for Public Health (NCIPH) examined associations between local public health investments and community health outcomes in North Carolina. Data were examined in two time periods—one prior and one subsequent to the 2008 economic recession. NCIPH used National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) profile data from 2005 and 2008 to capture expenditures, staffing, and service provision of NC local health departments (LHDs). Community outcomes were assessed using mortality rates from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, flu/pneumonia, and infant deaths. Increased LHD spending was associated with increased staffing (p < 0.05) and increased provision of medical treatment and specialty care services (p < 0.05). Increased provision of women and children’s services was associated with a decrease in infant mortality rates (p < 0.05). No other associations between spending, LHD services, and other mortality outcomes were observed within this timeframe. This study illustrates an approach to measure the return on investments in LHD services for infant mortality and other potential outcomes. NCIPH No
Poster: Evaluating Cross-Sector Collaboration within a Developing Regional Substance Misuse Prevention System 05-19-2014 Lea Ayers LaFave, New Hampshire Community Health Institute Building partnerships are key to public health prevention efforts. New Hampshire's Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Service invested heavily in infrastructure development through a community-based participatory process that promoted multi-sector partnerships. Systems development was embedded within a theory of change model that linked the development of cross-sectoral relationships and long-term substance misuse behavior reductions. Network analysis provided a method of evaluating partnership development. The Program to Analyze, Record, and Track Networks to Enhance Relationships (PARTNER), an online social network data collection and analysis tool, was used to collect data from ten developing substance misuse prevention networks in September 2011 and January 2013, before and after a statewide, community-driven strategic planning initiative. Significant improvements were found in network partner response rates, sector representation, trust scores, and levels of collaboration among network partners. Regional networks have used findings to drive strategic planning processes and demonstrate collaboration outcomes to funders. NHCHI No
Poster: Building Public Health Institutes' Capacity to Drive Health Department Accreditation Success 05-19-2014 Melissa Schigoda, National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) Acknowledging the valuable role public health institutes (PHIs) play in supporting accreditation readiness, NNPHI partnered with the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) to provide several capacity-building opportunities, including an accreditation training series that targeted PHIs as technical assistance providers for health departments. The first training was held at offices following the November 2013 American Public Health Association (APHA) conference. The second training included three webinars with homework assignments that have been archived and are available to PHIs. The third training is taking place at the NNPHI annual conference in May 2014. The training curriculum included topics such as the seven steps to accreditation, understanding the technical assistance firewall, and supporting health departments' preparation of evidence/documentation. Seven PHIs have contributed to the development and presentation of the training content, and over forty PHI staff have participated in these opportunities. Learn how to contribute to and learn from these and future opportunities. NNPHI No

Workshop: Linking Health with Economic Development for Collective Impact 05-19-2014 2014 NNPHI Annual Conference Linking Health with Economic Development for Collective Impact Kala Ladenheim and Kathleen E. Perkins, MCD Public Health Healthy Us© is a tool for facilitating worksite and community wellness in the context of economic development initiatives. Small employers (<20 employees) are focused on economic survival. To succeed at engaging employees in staff and community wellness, it is essential to link with local economic development initiatives and demonstrate how health enhances the economic growth of the community. This tool leverages the capacity of local public health coalitions and others to partner with economic development efforts to build sustainable approaches that enhance health. This tool was tested and improved in the context of a Small Community CTG award that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has described as one of the most successful in the country. Public health institutes can engage new partners and different funding sources by becoming the state and local resource for bringing economic development and community health groups together and providing the content expertise needed for successful collective impact.

Workshop: Effectively Engaging Local Elected Officials as Partners to Create Healthy Communities 05-19-2014 2014 NNPHI Annual Conference workshop Effectively Engaging Local Elected Officials as Partners to Create Healthy Communities Charlotte Dickson, California Center for Public Health Advocacy (CCPHA); Marisa Jones, Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPHI); Julie George, LiveWell Colorado; Dawn Robbins, Oregon Public Health Institute (OPHI) The phrases, "health is shaped by where we live, learn, work, and play" and "your zip code is a greater predictor of health than your genetic code" are common refrains in public health. For public health practitioners who utilize place-based strategies to address the social determinants of health, there is a tremendous opportunity to work with local elected officials to improve population health. Local governments have the unique power to use public policy to change, shape, and improve where community members "live, work, learn, and play." Elected officials have jurisdiction over zip codes—the same zip codes that play such a determinant role in health outcomes and opportunities. This workshop aims to teach participants how to harness the power that local governments have to shape the environment in which people live, work, and play through the adoption of public policy. It covers effective communication strategies and messages that engage local elected officials as partners in creating healthy communities by developing and adopting policies that promote community health. The speakers discuss how a positive health frame with values-based messaging builds relationships with officials from various party affiliations; these relationships are crucial for advancing an agenda that improves population health in cities and towns. The workshop also addresses what organizations should think about with regard to lobbying when working with elected officials. Panelists draw upon experiences from the Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Cities Campaign—active in four geographic regions—that works with officials in hundreds of cities on a menu of policy changes to create healthy, prosperous communities. The panelists represent projects in the Mid-Atlantic, Colorado, California, and the Northwest and include two public health institutes. Attendees receive sample materials and policy resources, and the session includes group exercises for participants to practice effectively engaging local elected officials.

Workshop: Public Health Institutes as Food Policy Leaders: Opportunities for Innovation at the Federal, State, and Local Levels 05-19-2014 2014 NNPHI Annual Conference workshop Public Health Institutes as Food Policy Leaders: Opportunities for Innovation at the Federal, State, and Local Levels Holly Calhoun, Healthy Farms Healthy People Coalition (HFHPC), Public Health Institute; Katherine Bishop, Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI); Jess Lynch, Illinois Public Health Institute (IPHI) This workshop features innovative food system reform and obesity prevention policy ideas. The public health community is increasingly engaging in food system innovation and reform to improve health outcomes in communities across the country. This workshop will review the efficacy of those efforts, including an assessment and stakeholder analysis of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (farm bill) reauthorization process and strategic recommendations for how public health institutes can lead change through policy opportunities including the Farm Bill, Child Nutrition Reauthorization, and Food Safety Modernization Act, in addition to local and state policy opportunities. The session also will give an overview of a range of obesity prevention policies, so that public health institutes in any area of the country will walk away with policy ideas that could work in their jurisdictions. In addition, the workshop will feature practical examples from the Illinois Public Health Institute’s experience overcoming challenges and building partnerships for food system innovation. Interactive discussion exercises building on the presentation topics will guide session participants through the process of working through key challenge points, and identifying opportunities and resources to lead innovative food system reform and obesity prevention in their own local, regional, and national communities.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference Breakout Session: Strategies for PHI Support of Modernized Primary Care Delivery Systems 05-22-2013 Following the release of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, Primary Care and Public Health: Exploring Integration to Improve Population Health, there has been increased national attention and discussion regarding strategies for how public health and health care can work together meaningfully to support a shared prevention agenda. The IOM report emphasized the important role for neutral third party organizations in facilitating successful long-term collaboration across clinical and population health. This intermediary role is a defining characteristic of public health institutes (PHIs), which provide many additional services and functions referenced in the IOM report. This session will feature examples of PHIs supporting modernized primary care delivery systems, including roles of a PHI promoting primary care access, achieving return on investment using community health workers, and modeling the expansion of the community health workforce.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference Breakout Session: Research and Evaluation: Collaboration, Community Engagement, and Methods 05-22-2013 This session combines three presentations on various aspects of research and evaluation ranging from collaboration and community engagement to methods used for measuring return on investment (ROI). Kathleen Amos and Ron Bialek, Public Health Foundation (PHF), will discuss the role of academic health departments (AHDs) in formalizing the collaboration between public health practice organizations and academic institutions. PHF will also describe how public health institutes (PHIs) are uniquely positioned to facilitate adoption of the AHD model and contribute to the AHD learning community. Montelle Tamez, University of Colorado, Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and Sara Miller, Colorado Foundation for Public Health and the Environment, will discuss the structure and role of a Community Research Liaison Program in building bridges for communication and partnership between the community in which they work and academic researchers from the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI). This presentation will illustrate the structure and role of this liaison program and will identify the many administrative roles that a PHI plays in order to assure the success of the program. Anna Schenck, North Carolina Institute for Public Health, will describe expenditures and ROI of North Carolina local health departments from 2005-2008 and explore the impact of changes in funding levels on service provision and outcomes. She will also address methods used, issues encountered, and approaches to address data concerns that could be used by other PHIs working to describe the relationship between funding and services or outcomes in other states.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference Breakout Session: Exploring Cross-Jurisdictional Service Sharing as a Way to Improve Effectiveness and Efficiency 05-22-2013 Do more with less. Increase capacity. Improve efficiency and effectiveness. These are some reasons offered by health departments for entering into cross-jurisdictional service sharing arrangements. During this session, representatives of three public health institutes will share perspectives on service sharing. The Center for Sharing Public Health Services will discuss what motivates policymakers and public health officials to consider service sharing. The center will discuss how 16 sites are collaborating across jurisdictional boundaries to explore, inform, track, and learn about the implementation of regional and shared approaches to delivering public health services to increase effectiveness and efficiency. The Institute for Wisconsin’s Health will discuss a recent study of service sharing arrangements among local and tribal health departments. Health Resources in Action will share how they have supported multiple districts in Massachusetts in their community health assessment and improvement planning (CHA/ CHIP) process to maximize engagement, ownership, and understanding of the issues through multi-sector partnerships.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference Post-Conference: Leading Through Health Systems Change: A Public Health Opportunity 05-22-2013 The changes inherent in the Affordable Care Act have extensive implications for all aspects of the U.S. health system: financing, service delivery, public health, coverage and access, quality, and, ultimately, well-being. During this critical period of health system transformation, public health has the opportunity to address both technical and adaptive challenges, think systemically, and begin to lay the groundwork for strategic action and innovation. The changes facing public health institutes are complex and, therefore, so are future options. At the core of this project is an interactive tutorial and planning tool workbook/web portal (Leading Through Health System Change) designed to assist public health leaders in learning how to apply adaptive thinking skills to the legal, administrative, and financial health reform challenges facing your organization. This workbook has been developed by the Georgia Health Policy Center, NNPHI, and CDC as a tool for public health practitioners at all levels, and the ability to think adaptively has applicability for public health beyond the Affordable Care Act. The purpose of this workshop is to prepare public health institutes to be able to use the Leading through Health System Change module with their state and local public health leaders.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference: Breakout Session: Strategies for Positioning Public Health Institutes to Advance Health Systems Innovations 05-21-2013 Several drivers are promoting advancements and innovations in America’s health systems, including the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, recommendations from the Institute of Medicine on the integration of primary care and public health, investments in information technology for meaningful use, and efforts to move from a disease-based health system to one that focuses on prevention and population health improvement. Strategic partnerships involving health care providers, public health agencies, and community-based organizations are responding to these drivers and leading innovative change efforts. Public health institutes serve as neutral conveners and important collaborative partners that engage multi-sector partners to build capacity for collaboration and the achievement of population health goals. This session will discuss strategies and initiatives at the federal, state, and local levels to facilitate health systems innovation. Examples of the roles that public health institutes are playing as strategic partners in these efforts will be shared and discussed.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference: Breakout Session: Public Health and Community Design: Opportunities for Workforce Development 05-21-2013 According to the National Prevention Strategy, many of the strongest predictors of health and well-being fall outside of the health care setting. Social, economic, and environmental factors all influence health. Despite growing evidence of the direct and indirect effects of the built environment on public health, planners—who shape the built environment—and public health professionals—who protect the public’s health—rarely interact. An expert panel on public health and community design cross-sectoral workforce development, supported by the National Network of Public Health Institutes and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was convened in Atlanta, GA on September 24-25, 2012 by faculty in the School of City and Regional Planning at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The panel represented a first step in bringing together experts from various organizations, disciplines, and specialties across the academy and practice to determine the process for how to best build a 21st century workforce capable of planning, designing, building, and maintaining healthy communities. The expert panel was charged to recommend ways to ensure that current and future professionals in the public health, planning, and community design sectors are able to identify and respond to new and emerging opportunities and threats in the built environment that impact population health. The panel ended with proposed actions to be taken by specific organizations and recommendations sequenced for short- and long-term execution. This session will share the panel’s recommendations and next steps for fostering collaboration between planning and public health.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference Pre-Meeting: Systems Thinking Tools for Facilitating Collaborative Conversations 05-20-2013 In an effort to foster the growth and development of emerging and established public health institutes, NNPHI offered a series of four concurrent sessions following the Sustainability Workshop Introduction. This session was part of the four concurrent sessions at the Pre-Conference Meeting: Sustainability Workshop. Jane Branscomb & Tamanna Patel, Georgia Health Policy Center As the landscape of public health tilts increasingly toward social and environmental factors that affect health equity and community-level health outcomes, the roster of involved stakeholders grows more diverse. Many public health institutes are called upon to serve as neutral conveners of these diverse stakeholder groups. Approaches and tools are needed for leading conversations that are inclusive, productive, and creative. Systems thinking and tools can serve well helping participants safely explore differences and similarities in information, assumptions, goals, and expectations within the group. From there, they may be able to identify new leverage points, both realistic and aspirational, for producing change in the systems in which they have shared interests. Systems thinking is a valuable skill for those seeking to solve today’s toughest population health problems. Expanding the boundaries of our mental models, examining issues from multiple perspectives, and considering a range of potential leverage points can bring powerful and creative solutions to light. The approach and some specific systems thinking tools also can be used effectively in engaging diverse stakeholders around a problem. This presentation will describe systems thinking basics and use small group exercises both to teach the use of specific tools and demonstrate how participants can use these tools in facilitating collaborative stakeholder conversations.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference Pre-Meeting:Community Development & Public Health and Hospitals: Leveraging Community Benefit and Community Reinvestment Act Resources 05-20-2013 In an effort to foster the growth and development of emerging and established public health institutes, NNPHI offered a series of four concurrent sessions following the Sustainability Workshop Introduction. This session was part of the four concurrent sessions at the Pre-Conference Meeting: Sustainability Workshop. Kevin Barnett, Public Health Institute (CA) Last year, NNPHI conference keynote speaker David Erickson (Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco) shared a brief history of community development in the United States and highlighted intersections between community development and public health. In February 2013, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco hosted a meeting entitled “Community Benefit & the Community Reinvestment Act: Moving from Compliance to Convergence.” Kevin Barnett of the Public Health Institute facilitated that meeting, and several public health institutes from other states participated as observers. This NNPHI 2013 Conference workshop will build on the lessons learned from that meeting providing public health institutes with a collective impact framework for leveraging public health improvement initiatives with the concepts and practices of community development and community benefit.

2013 NNPHI Annual Conference Pre-Meeting: The Sustainability Challenge: Business Planning Tools for Public Health Partnerships 05-20-2013 In an effort to foster the growth and development of emerging and established public health institutes, NNPHI offered a series of four concurrent sessions following the Sustainability Workshop Introduction. This session was part of the four concurrent sessions at the Pre-Conference Meeting: Sustainability Workshop. Stephen Orton, North Carolina Institute for Public Health Business planning skills will be key for local and state health departments in the next several years. Effective agencies will be able to speak business language with health care and other partners; help guide communities from assessment to effective collaborative action; find and tap new sources of revenue and effort; and start up and sustain innovative, effective interventions that improve community health. Public health institutes have an opportunity to provide tools and leadership in public health business planning. This session builds collaboration skills using a new, rapid business planning tool for public health projects. Based on a one-page planning template called “Lean Canvas,” the tool integrates the parts of a sustainable business plan, including need, target market, revenue, measurement, and evidence base. The tool helps design new collaborative initiatives or redesign existing programs. The tool addresses three key challenges facing health departments now: generating revenue, meeting community health needs, and galvanizing community partners.

Increasingly, public health leaders and decision-makers are looking to CJS as a means to work collaboratively to provide services that meet the needs of their communities, respond to budget pressures, and, in some cases, jointly meet the accreditation standards. A new national initiative sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will facilitate communities’ efforts to systematically address and accommodate these different drivers in the development of CJS arrangements. This session will provide a venue for public health institutes to inform a new initiative and consider their potential roles in CJS, which often will be an extension of institutes’ efforts around quality improvement in governmental public health and Public Health Services and Systems Research.

2012 NNPHI Annual Conference Roundtable Presentation:Controlling Junk Foods & the Bottom Line,Case Studies of Schools Successfully Implementing Strong Nutritional Standards Without Breaking the Bank 05-22-2012 Beginning with school year 2006-07, school districts nationwide were required to develop nutrition guidelines for all foods sold/served outside of the federal child nutrition programs as part of the congressionally-mandated school district wellness policy requirement (P.L. 108-265). Since then, schools have adopted nutrition policies of varying strengths, ranging from minimal standards to specifically limiting foods and beverages sold/served outside of reimbursable school meals. A qualitative research project was conducted in order to identify district- and school-level policies and practices that enable districts to adopt strong nutrition competitive foods and beverage policies without breaking the bank. This presentation will showcase a series of case studies, focusing on strategies districts and schools have used to successfully implement strong nutrition standards without having a significant reduction in their food-related profits.

2012 NNPHI Annual Conference Roundtable Presentation: Findings from the Preparedness and Emergency Response Centers (PERRCs) Program Evaluation, Cultivating the Translation of Research Findings into P 05-22-2012 The Preparedness and Emergency Response Centers (PERRCs) were established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to support research to improve federal, state, local, and tribal public health preparedness and response capabilities. In August 2011, CDC PERRC program staff conducted an external review to evaluate program progress. This presentation will discuss the evaluation approach and metrics methods used to assess outcomes, and the strategies to be employed to translate and scale-up implementation of research findings from the PERRCs, including identifying effective interventions and tools to be repackaged and targeted to specific audiences and developing and testing interventions within different settings and diverse targeted populations. CDC program staff will work with PERRC researchers to facilitate the evaluation, dissemination, and implementation of research findings and Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) tools, by developing a translation framework and creating translation supporting structures to enhance practice partners’ capacity to plan, implement, evaluate, and sustain the translated findings. This translation framework describes the key factors to consider in different stages of the translation process: (1) selection, (2) preparation, and (3) implementation of EBPs, along with essential evaluation issues to address at each stage. It provides practical action steps, strategies, and tools for planning and implementation, along with concrete examples of how to plan and overcome implementation obstacles.

2012 NNPHI Annual Conference Roundtable Presentation: State Level Model for Implementation of a Health Insurance Exchange 05-22-2012 The development of Health Insurance Exchanges is an integral component of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the law requires states to seek input from public health entities as they build their Exchanges. The federal government has left many implementation decisions to the states, and public health institutes (PHIs) have the opportunity to provide a public health voice in the development process. Key decision-points for states include defining the benefits to be covered by Qualified Health Plans (both inside and outside the Exchange), selecting persons or groups to serve as navigators to assist individuals in enrolling in public or private coverage, and identifying health care providers that should be considered Essential Community Providers. Other areas where PHIs might contribute expertise and research include identifying high-risk populations, planning for outreach and education, and developing reporting systems Signe Jones, Center for Mississippi Health Policy No
2012 NNPHI Annual Conference Roundtable Presentation: Public Health Opportunities in a 140 Character World 05-22-2012 Public health is using social media as a fast dissemination mechanism. One of the most used channels is Twitter, where the size of your network determines your reach. This network—composed of followers who might have both proximal and distal interests, interconnected with key words and hash tags—can be a powerful impact tool that allows the user to reach out in short 140 character messages. In public health, Twitter has been used as a partnership tool between schools of public health, public health agencies, researchers, practitioners, and decision-makers among others. This presentation demonstrates the reach and efficiency of several Twitter efforts, including Dr. Thomas Frieden’s, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, monthly public health related chat, hashtag: #CDCChat. You will learn the capabilities of NodeXL, a free, open-source Excel template, to analyze the effectiveness of your social media strategies or the strategies of others.

NNPHI Newsletter Accreditation Edition-Institute for Wisconsin’s Health: Supporting Accreditation Preparation and Quality Improvement 08-30-2011 The Institute for Wisconsin’s Health, Inc. (IWHI) is working with Wisconsin’s 11 federally recognized Tribes to increase activity around public health quality improvement (QI) and accreditation. IWHI organized an in-person Tribal accreditation open forum in late 2010, and hosted a webinar and two-day accreditation training in August 2011 featuring Aleena Hernandez of Tucson, Arizona-based Red Star Innovations, LLC. Ms. Hernandez serves as the institute’s Tribal Health Consultant. The 19 participants at the August training included teams from the Forest County Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk Nation, Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, and Oneida Nation. This group has charted a course for continued work together that includes quarterly face-to-face accreditation meetings hosted by each Tribal community. This series will begin with a forum in late 2011 that invites all Tribes to explore public health accreditation with the four Tribes that participated in the training. No MLC,NNPHI,PHIs
NNPHI Newsletter Accreditation Edition-North Carolina Institute for Public Health: Sharing Expertise to Inform the National Dialogue around Accreditation 08-30-2011 Since 2004, the North Carolina Institute for Public Health (NCIPH) at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health has served as the administrator of the NC Local Health Department Accreditation program. As an early pioneer for local public health accreditation, NC now has 61 of its 85 health departments accredited and the remaining will participate in the process by 2014 as required by legislative mandate. Accreditation and quality improvement (QI) should go hand-in-hand. NCIPH Evaluation Services conducted a study of the first 48 NC accredited health departments on the impact of accreditation and benefits and barriers related to the process. Study results will benefit other states now considering national accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). Half of the agencies reported acting on suggestions for quality improvement uncovered in the accreditation process, and 67 percent conducted QI activities. More details on this study can be found in the July 21 issue of the American Journal of Public Health, "Informing the National Public Health Accreditation Movement: Lessons from North Carolina's Accredited Local Health Departments," co-authored by Mary Davis, DrPH, Brittan Wood, MPH, and Edward Baker, MD, MPH.

NNPHI Newsletter Accreditation Edition- Capacity Building through Consultation, Training and Collaborative Readiness Activities 08-30-2011 The Illinois Public Health Institute’s (IPHI) Center for Community Capacity Development (CCCD) has provided training and technical assistance to local health departments for over five years, with a central focus on supporting community health assessment and planning through a capacity-building approach. As accreditation and quality improvement (QI) efforts gained steam nationally, the CCCD leveraged this competency to facilitate two Multi-State Learning Collaborative (MLC)-funded QI collaboratives and provide intensive one-on-one technical assistance initiatives to local health departments. As an outgrowth of the MLC, Illinois locals have asked IPHI to convene and support an ongoing learning network of health departments pursuing accreditation. This learning network will have quarterly conference calls to share experiences and explore issues, a listserver to facilitate problem-solving and share best practices, and occasional special presentations and webinars. In addition, three very diverse county health departments, (Kendall, Cook, and Clay) are banding together with IPHI to conduct mock accreditation reviews for each other as preparation for their Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) reviews.

NNPHI Newsletter Accreditation Edition-Kansas Health Institute Initiatives Help Health Departments Prepare for Accreditation 08-30-2011 For four years, the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) served as the lead agency for the state’s participation in the Multi-State Learning Collaborative (MLC). In the most recent phase, KHI partnered with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), the Kansas Association of Local Health Departments (KALHD), and the University of Kansas Area Health Education Centers to manage a collaborative of 68 local health departments (LHDs) as they begin preparing for and implementing community health assessments, one of the three prerequisites to apply for accreditation. For some LHDs in Kansas, it can be a challenge to obtain and share data needed for the community health assessment process. In response to this challenge, KHI, KDHE, and KALHD, and the Kansas Hospital Association recently agreed to purchase the Healthy Communities Network (HCN) information system. The HCN system provides a standardized, local view of core indicators regarding health and quality of life from online sources including the National Cancer Institute, the U.S. Census Bureau, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal, state, and regional organizations. In Kansas the system will provide indicators at the county level or, when the counts for less populated counties are too small to be useful, at the regional level. KHI and its partners will promote use of the system at the local level to support community health assessment efforts at public health agencies and hospitals. No MLC,NNPHI,PHIs
NNPHI Newsletter Accreditation Edition-Louisiana Public Health Institute: Partnering with the New Orleans Health Department to Prepare for Accreditation 08-30-2011 As a long-time partner of the local New Orleans Health Department (NOHD), the Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) is actively engaged in the department's accreditation preparation process. With the arrival of Karen DeSalvo, MD, MPH, MSc as the new Health Commissioner in January 2011, NOHD began a comprehensive transformation initiative to rebuild itself as a 21st century health department capable of improving population health through data-driven decision-making and policy development. NOHD is using Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) standards as a roadmap for the transformation and intends to apply for accreditation in the future.To support NOHD's goal of becoming an accredited local health department, LPHI has provided several forms of support and technical assistance. Through a grant from a local philanthropic organization, LPHI partnered with NOHD to hire a key staff member to add capacity in leading and managing NOHD's transformation. Recently, LPHI facilitated a meeting with NOHD leadership to review the accreditation standards in detail to assess the department's readiness for accreditation. LPHI is also partnering with NOHD to conduct a Community Health Assessment (CHA) and develop a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) for New Orleans through a grant from the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). Earlier this year, LPHI began facilitating neighborhood-level community health needs assessments using the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process, which will complement the NOHD assessment process.

In addition, the institute and consultant “cross-walked” the competency assessment items with accreditation guidelines to identify high priority areas for training development. RIPHI has also partnered with the New England Alliance for Public Health Workforce Development (through a subcontract with Yale University School of Public Health) to implement a workforce training needs assessment for the state. The assessment instrument uses the public health competencies developed by the Council on Linkages between Academia and Public Health Practice and adapted by the North Carolina Institute for Public Health to assess three “tiers” of public health workers (entry, managers, and leaders).

NNPHI Newsletter Accreditation Edition- Institute for Public Health Innovation Establishes Public Health Accreditation Technical Assistance Team 08-30-2011 Identifying experts in government and community public health practice, policy development, adult education, and quality improvement, the Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPHi) recently established a technical assistance team to offer technical support to health departments that wish to apply for accreditation. IPHi will offer technical support in areas such as designing and implementing approaches to fulfilling the three accreditation prerequisites, accreditation process management, stakeholder engagement, policymaker education, and ongoing quality improvement planning. IPHi is already assisting Montgomery County, Maryland’s Department of Health and Human Services (MCDHHS) to prepare for its potential pursuit of accreditation by playing an integral role in the implementation of a county-wide community health assessment and the development of a community health improvement plan. MCDHHS was looking for a competent, neutral organization that could design and conduct qualitative research to complement existing county capacity for quantitative research. They also needed outside help to facilitate a process of issue prioritization and action agenda development with a steering committee of diverse county leaders. MCDHHS turned to IPHi as the natural partner. The experiences and lessons learned from work in Montgomery County will inform how we support other jurisdictions throughout the DC-MD-VA region that are interested in fulfilling the necessary accreditation prerequisites.

MATCH/CHA/CHIP Workgroup- Call Notes 06-28-2011 These are the notes and next steps, which correspond with the recording, of the first MATCH/CHA/CHIP workgroup call. During the PHI Sustainability Workshop at the 2011 NNPHI Annual Conference, the RWJF 2009-2011 grantees went through a process of identifying an area of opportunity that they would like to pursue together. Our discussion focused on the capacities of the public health institutes to support the use of the County Health Rankings and their growing capacity in conducting Community Health Assessments and Community Health Improvement Plans. At NNPHI, we see great synergy between these processes and have had several conversations at the national level about the capacity of the institutes to support these efforts. The RWJF grantees felt there was an opportunity to define the role that PHIs can play and would like to develop a strategy, methodology or tools around connecting the dots between MATCH, CHAs and CHIPs. The RWJF grantees have formed a workgroup to explore this opportunity that will hopefully result in a funded project for all NNPHI members. The purpose of this call was to recruit additional NNPHI members to participate in the workgroup to help shape the opportunity and explore avenues for funding. Many members on this call shared their expertise in implementing and supporting MATCH, CHA and CHIP processes. No FEIP,NNPHI

2011 NNPHI Annual Conference-Roundtable: Sharing the Challenge of Community Health Assessment 05-18-2011 Presenter: Mark Bertler, CEO, Public Health Foundation Enterprises, Inc.; Pamela Austin, CEO, Orange County Health Needs Assessment (OCHNA) With passage of the Affordable Care Act and impending implementation of public health accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) initiative, public health institutes have an opportunity to work in their states to establish and support a single framework for community health assessment. Utilizing a single framework not only saves time, effort, and resources—it also provides opportunities to harmonize the community benefit responsibilities of hospitals with the community assessment responsibilities of health departments. In addition, using a single framework improves the ability to compare local assessments across the state and promotes use of consistent goals and objectives for health improvement. The presentation will discuss the tools, strategies, and expertise necessary to develop and implement a single framework for health assessment. Competencies addressed: Fiscal/ Administrative Management; Population-based Health Programs; Health Policy Development, Implementation and Evaluation; Research/Evaluation; Convening/Partnering Hot Topic: Community Health Assessments; Health Impact Assessments; Health Reform; CDC Winnable Battles; Evidence-Based Public Health; Accreditation and Quality Improvement No

Breakout Session: Environmental Public Health Tracking: Uniting Public Health_ 2011 NNPHI Annual Conference 05-18-2011 Presenter: Tom Dunlop, Colorado Foundation for Public Health and the Environment Moderator: Chris Kinabrew, MPH, MSW, National Network of Public Health Institutes The federally funded Environmental Public Health Tracking project (EPHT), with a genesis in the Pew Foundation and administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is designed to develop a national surveillance program associating various forms of illness and disease with environmental exposures. Linkages between the environmental and public health disciplines; and linkages between local, state, federal, and non-profit partners are central to successful outcomes of EPHT. This session will provide an opportunity to learn how institutes can gain from connecting with state and national participants who are forming this national surveillance network. The message will encourage participants to pursue partners who may have been previously unknown, but can strengthen visions and missions of institutions and foundations. Tom Dunlop No
Breakout Session: MATCH: The Next Evolution_2011 NNPHI Annual Conference 05-18-2011 Presenter: Drs. Julie Willems Van Dijk and Bridget Booske, University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute Moderator: Jennifer McKeever, LCSW, MPH, National Network of Public Health Institutes In January, 2009, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) funded the original “Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH)” project at the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. The County Health Rankings were developed as part of this project and were released for the first time in February 2010 and again in March 2011. The Rankings are intended to raise awareness about the many factors that influence health and to stimulate broad community engagement in local communities to implement evidence-informed policies and programs to improve health. In October 2010, the RWJF board responded to the high level of interest in community health improvement generated by the County Health Rankings and approved a new MATCH initiative focused on action. This session will describe the new initiative and focus on the role of Public Health Institutes in MATCH. Julie Willems Van Dijk and Bridget Booske No

2011 NNPHI Annual Conference-Roundtable: The Science of Community Engagement: Using a Public Health Institute to Increase Effectiveness of Translational Research through an Innovative Community and A 05-18-2011 Presenter: Sara E Miller, Executive Director, Colorado Foundation for Public Health and the Environment; Montelle Tamez, Community Engagement Program Manager, University of Colorado Denver, Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI) The past ten years have seen a strong emergence of academic-community partnerships as an approach to conducting participatory and translational public health services research. While this approach brings new opportunities for generating knowledge and exchange, it also raises new social, ethical, and administrative challenges. Addressing and surmounting these challenges is critical for transforming community-academic partnerships into sustained enterprises that address health concerns at the community level. The University of Colorado’s Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI) has developed a unique solution to these obstacles, involving a flourishing partnership with the Colorado Foundation for Public Health and Environment (CFPHE), a local public health institute. This presentation will describe the intrigal role of CFPHE in forming the partnership and establishing systems to facilitate meaningful community representation and participation, including shared governance, innovative fiscal structures, and others. The CCTSI Community Engagement and Research Program is supported by NIH/NCRR Colorado CTSI Grant Number UL1 RR025780.

2011 NNPHI Annual Conference_Roundtable-Social Media: A New Approach to Improve Oral Health in the State of Florida 05-18-2011 Presenter: Claude Earl Fox, M.D., M.P.H., Executive Director, and Debora Kerr, Assistant Director, Florida Public Health Institute Communication strategies and the speed of information dissemination are constantly changing with advances in technology. The social marketing plan is playing an important role in improving oral health outcomes. The Florida Public Health Institute considered the role of individuals when spreading the oral health message and developed an oral health communications strategy to increase awareness and knowledge that encourage communities to improve oral health issues in the State of Florida. Technology, telecommunications, and social interaction are helping to build programs based on community need. This two-way communication interaction capitalizes on the statewide Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body messaging campaign, which emphasizes how certain health behaviors can prevent diseases. This new approach in Florida is providing a resource for the public and state policy makers to lead in the improvement of oral health care prevention and access.

2011 NNPHI Annual Conference-Roundtable: Fort McPherson Interim Zoning Health Impact Assessment 05-18-2011 Presenter: Elizabeth Fuller, Dr.P.H., Research Associate II, Georgia Health Policy Center Fort McPherson is a 488-acre Army base in Atlanta, GA scheduled to close as a part of the Department of Defense's Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) program. The redevelopment requires design and implementation decisions that could impact the health and quality of life of incoming residents and existing residents in surrounding communities. In order to understand the potential health impacts of the development on surrounding communities, the Georgia Health Policy Center conducted a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) of the zoning plan for interim use of the property. The HIA resulted in recommendations for zoning elements which could impact nutrition, physical activity, alcohol and tobacco use, and social cohesion in the communities surrounding Fort McPherson.

2011 NNPHI Annual Conference-Roundtable: How Are We Doing 05-18-2011 Presenter: Mark Bertler, CEO, Public Health Foundation Enterprises, Inc. Public health institutes (PHIs), fiscal sponsors, and other similar organizations are often asked to justify their operations both to internal and external audiences. To date, there are no industry-wide measurements or metrics that are available to answer the simple question of “how we're doing.” In addition, the usual and customary measurements and metrics are not easily applied to PHIs. The roundtable will discuss what is currently available, where there might be gaps in statndard approaches, and how those gaps might be addressed. Additionally, the roundtable will discuss whether it is in the industry's best interest to agree on standard performance metrics. Competencies addressed: Fiscal/ Administrative Management Hot Topic: Accreditation and Quality Improvement Public Health Foundation Enterprises, Inc No
2011 NNPHI Annual Conference-Roundtable: Bridging Technology and Traditional Methods to Talk About Evidence-Based Approaches with Local Boards of Health 05-18-2011 Presenter: Marita Chilton, Project Coordinator, National Association of Local Boards of Health Tools such as the Guide to Community Preventive Services (Community Guide) can provide local boards of health with a foundation for developing or modifying policies, justification of funding decisions, and a comparison of existing policies with systematic reviews. Twenty demonstration sites in four states (Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and Washington) were chosen, in a collaboration involving consultants from each state and National Association of Local Boards of Health (NALBOH) staff to test a framework which employed technology, including a cloud space (shared Internet space), conference calls, electronic mail, and an electronic data tracking tool with traditional methods, such as site presentations during board of health meetings, in order to increase awareness and disseminate technical information relating to evidence-based practice approaches. This roundtable will provide an overview of local boards of health, share lessons learned from the demonstration sites, including a discussion of technology obstacles, and identify how institutes can partner with boards of health by using evidence-based approaches.

2011 NNPHI Annual Conference-Roundtable:The Simple, Low-Cost Path from Organizational Vision to Strategic Communication 05-18-2011 Presenter: Dina Wolfman Baker, Vice-President of Communications, Public Health Management Corporation Engaging stakeholders is key to maintaining the organization's edge. If stakeholders understand, internalize, believe in themselves, and know how to live and communicate the mission, we've achieved a true stakeholder/organization partnership. But where do we find the budget to up the ante? Each of our organizations communicates with our stakeholders already; turning this existing practice into an effective, strategic, and integrated communications model that consistently represents and transmits the vision and mission is a relatively simple and inexpensive means to stakeholder engagement. We will look at an approach the speaker now has in process as a model to understand how vision and mission can provide a starting point for stakeholder communication and how effective communication can support vision and mission a highly effective cycle. Participants are asked to bring their vision and mission statements, and short bullet lists of their current communications processes and practices, to jump-start group discussion.
