Emerging Prevention Transformations
Sheila Savannah, MA, Program Director
Larry Cohen, MSW, Founder and Executive Director
Recent years have brought great promise for prevention, providing the opportunity for interdisciplinary, comprehensive approaches to keep everyone healthy and safe in the first place. Join Prevention Institute’s Founder & Executive Director Larry Cohen and Program Director Sheila Savannah for a discussion on emerging prevention transformations, with a focus on public health’s role in advancing health equity, community resilience, and health system transformation. This is a time of great opportunity to move our focus from sick-care to health; from attention to the individual to community-level solutions; from trauma to resilience; and from public health as practitioner to public health as facilitator and catalyst of change.Prevention Institute (based in Oakland, California) is a national nonprofit that helps shape the way that we think about health: improving community conditions, reducing inequities, and taking action to prevent illness, injury and violence before they occur. Larry and Sheila work with communities, policymakers, and philanthropy to advance a deeper understanding of how community factors influence health, safety and equity.
