November 13th Webinar: Strengthening the Community Prevention Landscape: New CDC Grants and the Road Forward

Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced the recipients of six new grant programs that aim to prevent chronic disease and boost healthy communities.  The funding programs will help public health departments, national and community-based organizations, community coalitions, school districts, local housing and transportation authorities, and American Indian tribes build healthier, more equitable communities.

These efforts are most likely to succeed if the programs being funded build strong partnerships with other organizations in their communities and if they effectively communicate with partners, decision makers the public and the media about the work they are doing, why it matters and what impact it is having. 

All of us—whether we are part of a funded program or not—have the opportunity to contribute towards building a true system of prevention and can help these efforts succeed by working to build those partnerships and by promoting community health and prevention efforts.

Join the Prevention Institute, APHA, Public Health Institute and Trust for America’s Health as CDC leadership describes their goals for these new funding efforts and to hear from three grantees about their project plans, including insights into robust communication with key audiences (including policymakers), ways partners can engage in the work, and the continuing importance of public and private partnerships.
