Healthy Families: New Tools and Networks
January 8, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Following an intensive pilot program with over 60 Washington, DC families, our discussion will focus on what families need, from the micro to macro environment, to feel confident, empowered and successful in managing their family’s health. Our findings, panelists and thinking suggests that the power of networks and collaborative engagement of multisector policies and practice can have a tremendous impact—not only on our family’s health, but also on the wider community’s health.
Hope Street Group is a national nonprofit dedicated to expanding economic opportunity and prosperity for all Americans and Grow Your Family Strong is a social venture committed to providing families with healthy, practical tools for improved nutrition. Together, we invite you to explore how these networks intertwine and the next frontier of wellness with over 150 stakeholders, from mothers to business executives to policy leaders. If we can uncover the incentives and interventions of change together and specifically identify what roles—across individuals, communities, businesses and government—we can play, improved national health is inevitable.
This event provides the opportunity for you to share your own experiences and contribute what you feel needs to be done to improve community health!
