South Carolina Population Health Summit

Registration has opened for the first South Carolina Population Health Summit on May 20, 2016 hosted by the Alliance for a Healthier South Carolina. The goal of the Summit is to bring together community, non-profit, business, government and health care leaders to discuss how to improve the health and economic well-being of the populations that they serve.  Leaders in five regions of the state will convene in locations close to their home to discuss regionally-relevant population health opportunities. The five locations will be connected by videoconference to share conclusions and keynote presentations. The keynote presentations may be viewed at additional sites.

Keynote presentations will share:

MOVING FROM DATA TO ACTION: SPARTANBURG WAY TO WELLVILLE

The Spartanburg Community Indicators Project served as a catalyst for one of the most rapid community health improvement efforts in SC and the nation, effectively decreasing infant mortality and low birth weight. In 2015, Spartanburg was recognized as a winner of one of the prestigious RWJF Culture of Health Prizes, largely due to the efforts of that project. Dr. Kathleen Brady, who leads the Spartanburg Community Indicators Project, and Mitch Kennedy, the Community Services Director of Spartanburg will share how they moved from data to action in partnership with their community.

STARTING AND GROWING THE MOVEMENT FOR A HEALTHIER POPULATION: LIVE WELL SAN DIEGO

San Diego County is home to 3.2 million people. In 2010 they embarked in a county-wide initiative to improve health outcomes. To date, they have made improvements to most of the indicators they selected and have engaged over 120 partners in 10 cities. Dale Fleming, who oversees the Office of Strategy and Innovation, led the development of those 10 indicators, and supports the implementation of the Live Well San Diego vision. She will be sharing with us how to start and grow the movement for healthy communities to achieve large scale impact on health outcomes
