Prioritizing equity and community wellbeing in the wake of catastrophic events (Prevention Institute)

We will share examples of steps local municipalities have taken to strengthen their social, physical/built, economic, and educational environments to improve wellbeing and promote health equity. Come prepared to unmute your microphone and interact with other participants!

Objectives:
  • Use the Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience (ACE|R) framework to think about equitable community-level recovery and systems change that supports wellbeing in the long term.
  • Identify actions agencies and organizations have taken before or during periods of disruption such as the COVID-19 pandemic to create protective environments, strengthen economic supports, and advance other suicide and trauma prevention strategies.
  • Discuss what actions are needed moving forward to further community wellbeing, prevent suicide and trauma, and intentionally address racial and other inequities.

This webinar is part of PI’s Adverse Childhood Experiences and Suicide Prevention Rapid Response Training & Tools. Through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Prevention Institute has partnered with the National League of Cities and Dr. Howard Pinderhughes, Director of the Sociology Doctoral Program at the University of California, San Francisco, to offer training and tools to local government and their partners in supporting their communities.
Speakers:
  • Dr. Howard Pinderhughes, Director of the Sociology Doctoral Program at the University of California, San Francisco
  • Deborah A. Moore, Assistant Director, Houston Health Department
  • Sheila Savannah, Managing Director, Prevention Institute
