4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Presenters will showcase case studies from CityHealth, an initiative of the de Beaumont Foundation and Kaiser Permanente, that present how businesses and governmental public health have worked together to pass public health policy that address the social determinants of health in their community. These case studies will detail both challenges and mutual benefits of cross sector partnerships that led to policy changes that improve workforce health. To accompany these examples, presenters will debut tools and research that have been conducted by the de Beaumont Foundation and partners such as the Aspen Institute, the Bipartisan Policy Center and NORC. These include a toolkit to aid public health practitioners in framing messages around cross-sector partnerships, a value proposition for why business and governmental public health should work together on community health improvement, and key informant interviews with business leaders about their attitudes towards employee and community health.
