As hospitals and other healthcare providers begin to understand their capacity to use more organizational assets to enhance human health and invest in their local communities, new strategic alliances are emerging. The Public Health Institute (PHI) and the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE) are national organizations working to illuminate the value of those alliance, and the connections between local economic strategies and the social determinants of health. They will explore specific strategies for community wealth building that serve as a path of engagement for providers to also build community health.

In this webinar, we will hear from:
• Public Health Institute Senior Investigator, Kevin Barnett,
• BALLE Community Engagement Director Leslie Lindo,
• Urbane Development Principal and CEO, James Johnson-Piett

Topics include:
• Insights from work with hospitals and the broader health and community development sectors to design strategies that help build population health capacity and bend the cost curve.
• Aligning non-clinical assets with local economic development strategies
• Creative investment vehicles
• Real-time examples of community development projects for cross-collaboration

  • The massive institutional failure and disruptive changes at the beginning of the 21st century confront leaders across systems with unprecedented challenges of how facilitate desired change at collective and personal levels. These challenges hold the seeds for profound civilizational renewal while also holding the possibility of massive disruption and breakdown. We cannot attend to these challenges and the opportunities they hold simply by learning, as essential as this is, only from the experiences of the past. We need to develop the skills to lead change by sensing systems from the whole.In this presentation, Martin will talk about three main themes.
  • One, we have to continuously suspend our habits of judgment in order to cultivate our Open Mind.
  • Two, we need to redirect our attention in order to connect to the “highest future possibilities.”
  • Three, we need to learn to connect with the present moment, and let come what wants to emerge


  • August 23, 2016 Knowledge Camp Webinar:  Data and Storytelling
  • Data and storytelling are important tools that your ACH can use to set the course for shifts in behaviors, practices and policies.
  • HealthData+ is a partnership between Public Health Institute and LiveStories, an online platform that makes it easy to publish web-based stories that combine interactive graphs, charts, maps with compelling narrative, photos, graphics and videos. During our session we will showcase examples of stories generated by other communities and provide a demo of the LiveStories platform. We will also facilitate discussion on how to tell meaningful, data-driven stories that can strengthen the impact of your work.
