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.
