COVID-19 has led hospitals and health systems to develop innovative approaches to engage with their communities to assess community health needs and implement improvement plans. Join other community health leaders and colleagues to share strategies and tactics that have helped advance community health priorities as we continue to navigate the complexities of the pandemic, the related economic fallout and the national racial justice movements.  

This members-only forum will provide an overview of the current community health assessment and improvement landscape from the American Hospital Association and Catholic Health Association. A panel of community health leaders from diverse communities will share their COVID-informed experiences and learnings. Participants will then engage in a structured, peer-to-peer discussion with those at a similar point in their assessment and implementation process, allowing space for knowledge exchange and connections with colleagues in the field. Attendees will leave the session with the insights, resources, and connections to better facilitate this work in their local communities during these challenging times.  

Professionals from AHA member hospitals who work on their hospital or health system’s community health, community benefit or community engagement portfolio are invited to register for this members’ only event.  

Note: Space is limited, so reserve your spot today! This will be an interactive event, so please plan to be fully engaged for the entirety of the 90-minute session. Registration closes 12:00 PM CT Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
