Abstract:

Poster presented on: Monday, November 18, 2013, Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Demographic indicators over the last decade demonstrate an increased trend in minority, poor, and elderly populations.  Therefore, there is a growing public health concern about adequately responding to increased disease burden and emergency preparedness within this vulnerable population. Increasing economic challenges, political barriers and decreasing governmental resources for public health have impacted the health status of communities. “Health Checks”, previously piloted by a collaborative effort with the county government, Nassau Center for Health Initiatives, local hospitals and community agencies, is an innovative action plan strategy developed to target communities with the poorest health outcomes and most vulnerable populations. The “Health Checks“ project focuses on developing a capacity building plan to address health disparities and emergency preparedness in communities with the greatest health needs and a willingness and/or ability to participate in an organized effort to promote health and safety. This presentation will focus on the components of “A Big Picture Model” for replication in building community support capacity.  “Health Checks” utilizes available health, census and community data to inform and educate project leaders and moves them to form a Local Action Committee (LAC), comprised of local stakeholders for the targeted community. The central goal of Health Checks is to develop a Local Action Committee (LAC) to work with the leadership team to improve health outcomes and emergency preparedness needs. This collaboration will provide community health assessment information which will identify health priorities and support organizational and resources structure to achieve community-driven outcomes. An important outcome of this assessment is to promote advocacy for improved and sustainable community programs and services amongst the local partners and stakeholders to improve health and emergency preparedness. This project has been developed as part of a CDC funded National Leadership Academy for Public Health training program.
