Collaborating to build resilient health care

Amidst the threat of future pandemics and climate change, learn why collaboration between hospitals, public health, and community are critical to addressing social determinants of health and fostering healthy and resilient communities.

Experts will discuss:

  • how to address inequities exposed by COVID-19 and climate change.
  • neglected determinants of health, including clean air, safe water, and protection from heat.
  • a new resilient model for health care that aligns hospitals with community needs.

 

Session details

The current health care system fragments public health, hospitals, and communities rather than recognizing each as essential pillars in a successful health system. These entities often identify the same priority issues but don’t work together to address them. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, these pillars have become even more vulnerable. Experts will explain why environmental factors are a priority and how they work collaboratively across health care and are informed by communities. Learn why these collaborations are critical to addressing social determinants of health and fostering healthy and resilient communities amidst the threat of future pandemics and climate change.
