The changing health department: multisectoral artnerships

The Changing Health Department I: Multisectoral Partnerships 

Thursday, July 23, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law in 2010, primarily aims to increase access to and quality of health care. However, because it contains several provisions targeted at preventive and community health, there is expectation that the ACA will drastically transform the U.S. public health system. This webinar series will spotlight public health agency innovation in the wake of health systems change. 
The rise in complex chronic conditions is contributing to increasing health care costs, poorer quality of life, and greater health inequities. While seen as preventable, tackling these conditions will require will require multi-sectoral, systems-level solutions. Long-lasting policy and systems change efforts must address the social determinants of health in order to make real progress in slowing today's most challenging public health burdens.
This webinar will detail a unique and longstanding multi-sectoral partnership to address asthma and poor housing conditions in Boston. It will describe program, policy and systems change strategies that have improved multifamily housing and ensured that residents with asthma have access to healthier home environments.
