SUNY Albany: Healthy Communities: An Assessment and Implementation Framework to Achieve Inclusion of Persons with Disability

University at Albany School of Public Health’s Center for Public Health Continuing Education will host Healthy Communities: An Assessment and Implementation Framework to Achieve Inclusion of Persons with Disability, on Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am Eastern.  The webcast will feature Yochai Eisenberg, MUPP, senior research specialist, Center on Health Promotion Research for Persons with Disabilities, Institute on Disability and Human Development, University of Illinois at Chicago, and affiliate, National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability, Birmingham, Alabama. This webcast will describe the importance of recognizing persons with disability as a demographic group that experiences health disparities and introduce an assessment and implementation framework to drive public health action.  Mr. Eisenberg will highlight lessons learned from demonstration projects that have utilized the Community Health Inclusion Index (CHII), the first instrument to operationalize community health inclusion into a comprehensive assessment tool that can be used by public health professionals and community coalitions to examine the critical supports needed to improve healthy, active living among persons with disability, as well as best practices for successful implementation.
