Healthy Communities: An Assessment and Implementation Framework to Achieve Inclusion of Persons with Disability (Non-CHLP)
March 16, 2017, 6:00 - 7:00 am PDT / 9:00 - 10:00 am EDT
In this webcast, presenters will describe the importance of recognizing persons with disability as a demographic group that experiences health disparities. They will introduce an assessment and implementation framework to drive public health action, focusing on the Community Health Inclusion Index (CHII). The CHII is the first instrument to operationalize community health inclusion into a comprehensive assessment tool that can be used by public health professionals and community coalitions to examine the critical supports needed to improve healthy, active living among persons with disability.
