ACHI 2020 National Conference | June 15-17 | Cleveland, OH
Connecting Care with Community to Advance Health Equity
Population and community health leaders are coming together to look at community, community health, and health equity through one lens, sharing innovative strategies and new tools to tackle tough challenges — and boldly transform how communities and populations experience health and care.
By working together, the goal of becoming a society of healthy communities where all individuals reach their highest potential for health is possible. We can focus on strategies to redesign health care with a better understanding of the social and structural factors that impact health and are the root cause of illness. We can more seamlessly connect that care with community resources via enhanced partnerships to support individuals and families in the manner that is most meaningful to them and produces the highest quality of care. And we can improve the well-being of our communities via place-based strategies to support a healthy ecosystem by addressing the fundamental inequities that continue to translate into dramatic differences in outcomes. Join us to be part of the conversation and collaboration to boldly transform how communities and populations experience health and care.
New this year! ACHI is Co-locating with the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity
Changes in the national landscape have led hospitals and health systems to broaden their focus from being primarily providers of acute care in traditional clinical settings to being collaborative promoters of individual and community well-being. As a result, we are excited to announce that ACHI is co-locating with the AHA’s Institute for Diversity and Health Equity
(IFDHE) National Leadership and Education Conference
. Through this combined effort, attendees will be able to convene with their colleagues working to promote community health, diversity, inclusion and health equity by looking beyond the four walls of the hospital to systematically address the social determinants of health and other root causes of illness. A discounted registration fee is available to those attending both conferences.
The Association for Community Health Improvement
, an affiliate of the American Hospital Association
, is the premier national association for community health, community benefit and population health professionals. The AHA is committed to driving the development of accessible and equitable health services by partnering with communities and redesigning delivery systems to ensure seamless, high-quality and affordable care for all patients.
