Join us on Friday, August 26, for "Public Health INsights and INnovations," a free online training series presented by the Center for Public Health Practice and the Indiana Public Health Training Center at the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health. Over the coming months we'll use the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Culture of Health Action Framework to explore how hospitals, health departments, and non-profit organizations can work together to achieve our shared goal of improving health in our communities.

This month, we'll continue with part two of a two-part series on Action Area 3 of the Framework: "Creating Healthier, More Equitable Communities." Vicki Johnson-Poynter of Schneck Medical Center will be joined by Tonja Couch of Jackson County United Way, Lin Montgomery of the Jackson County Health Department, and Dr. Nate Otte. They'll share their experiences with developing and implementing policies and governance to support equitable communities. You'll have an opportunity to share your own experiences and insights during the Q & A following the discussion.
