Intersectoral Collaboration for Health:
Reports from Local Health Departments  
Thursday, November 15
11:30 AM to 1:00 PM Pacific Standard Time

Increasingly, local communities throughout the United States are adopting a Health in All Policies framework, as they pursue intersectoral, collaborative approaches to improving health by incorporating health considerations into decision-making across all policy areas. This is based on the recognition that policy and program decisions of "non-health" agencies impact health in significant and lasting ways.
Sonoma County's Health Action is a diverse, multi-disciplinary group charged with identifying priorities and developing specific recommendations on local approaches to promote the community's health and improve health care delivery. The initiative's 10 goals and 22 measures include educational attainment, economic security, access to healthy food and places to be active, and other health determinants.
Baltimore's Cross Agency Health Taskforce is made up of representatives from city agencies that are working together to promote cross sector efforts supporting Healthy Baltimore 2015's ten priority areas. A Health in All Policies approach provides a framework for agencies to consider their role in making the built and social environment in Baltimore communities more supportive of physical activity, which is the Task Force's focus for 2012.
This 90-minute Web Forum will include a short overview of the Health in All Policies approach, an introduction to the work of the Baltimore's Cross Agency Health Taskforce and Sonoma's Health Action, including history and accomplishments, and a discussion of the lessons learned from these exciting local initiatives.

Sponsored by the American Public Health Association and The California Endowment, in partnership with the California Department of Public Health and the Public Health Institute.
