Teaming Up for Collaboration and Learning

written by Joan Ascheim, MSN, Executive Director

Jose and GroupOn October 2, 2019, NHPHA, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and the Vermont Public Health Association joined forces to host Team Up, Take Action: A Conference on Partnering to Improve Community Health, with the theme Building Bridges between Communities and Healthcare. The conference drew more than 200 participants to the lovely Hanover Inn for networking and an exciting day of professional development. We welcomed José T. Montero, MD, MCHDS, and his humor back to New Hampshire as the keynote speaker. Dr. Montero shared strategies for partnerships and leadership to address population health. Participants had opportunities to attend skills-building workshops in the morning relative to community-based participatory research, change management, health equity, and community health planning. Following lunch, Dr. Montero moderated a lively discussion on health equity and population health. Afternoon workshops focused on LGBTQ+ and quality care, health equity partnerships, food access, and adverse childhood experiences.

The day highlighted the innovative public health work being carried out by dedicated and talented public health and health care professionals in both Vermont and New Hampshire communities. Slide presentations for most sessions and more photos from the event can be found on our website here.
