Faith – Health Collaboration to Improve Population Health: A Workshop

Please join the National Academies’ Roundtable on Population Health Improvement for the spring workshop.

The free, one-day public workshop that will explore challenges and opportunities for health sector actors that engage with “faith-based health assets.” These organizations and social structures, in the form of congregations and religious community service networks, collaborate with others in communities, including health systems and public health agencies, to improve the conditions for health and well-being. The workshop will

  1. provide an overview of faith-based assets in communities and their relationship to population health and the work of health improvement;
  2. highlight areas where faith-based health assets are using evidence to inform their work and demonstrating effectiveness in improving health outcomes;
  3. provide examples of effective partnerships involving faith-based health assets; and
  4. share lessons learned from working with faith-based assets that could contribute toward principles for engagement for health care organizations and public health agencies.

Where: Shaw University, Raleigh, North Carolina

When: March 22, 8:30am to 5:00pm
