Upcoming Take Action Webinar: Choose Effective Policies & Programs
Please join us Tuesday, August 14th from 2-3 pm CDT (3-4 pm EDT) for the fifth webinar in our Take Action series: Choose Effective Policies & Programs.
Choosing effective policies and programs that work in real life will maximize your chances of success. Not every well-intentioned policy or program is effective. Taking the time to look for strategies that have been shown to effectively address particular problems or issues will be time well spent. Learn about guidance and tools for selecting policies and programs to address priority issues.
Alison Bergum, Senior Policy Analyst with the County Health Roadmaps project, will join us to introduce What Works for Health, a new tool coming to CountyHealthRankings.org. What Works for Health provides communities with information to help select and implement evidence-informed policies and programs that can improve health. Alison will discuss why considering evidence is an important part of choosing effective policies and programs and demonstrate how communities can use What Works for Health.
