The following is a listing of events that might be of interest to those in Public Health.
Research shows that health equity is critical to building a happy, prosperous nation, but that doesn’t mean a one-size-fits-all approach is the answer. Join the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for a webinar with national and local leaders working to create opportunities for all residents. You’ll hear about the ways a new definition can help us advance solutions and measure progress, and hear directly from communities working to ensure that everyone can be as healthy as possible.

The 2017 Rural Behavioral Health Webinar Series will provide resources and information on innovative approaches to address rural community behavioral health. These approaches are embedded in a public health framework that acknowledges the role that social, economic, and geographic elements play in the lives of individuals and how they impact behavioral health and well-being. Through these webinars participants will learn about strategies to create and sustain services and supports that reduce the impact of behavioral health issues and promote a good quality of life for an entire community. The webinar series provides an opportunity for participants to learn from experts and is intended to facilitate peer-to-peer networking, knowledge exchange, and information sharing.
