A disparity in healthcare outcomes for individuals in poverty compared with other socioeconomic classes clearly exists.  This one-day intensive training identifies many of the underlying layers that prevent the desired health outcomes and presents an opportunity for examination of our own practices and societal experience.  This material lays a foundation for developing strategies to improve efficacy with our community members that are experiencing poverty or near poverty.

Healthcare providers will learn to:

  • Engage and better serve individuals across the economic spectrum
  • Reduce costs while achieving more successful patient outcomes
  • Communicate complex medical information more clearly
  • Design services to account for increasing diversity within communities
  • Increase effectiveness within successful, patient-centered care initiatives

Public health organizations, communities & governments will learn to:

  • Reduce the health gap and improve outcomes for all, especially those at risk
  • Build sustainable neighborhoods and communities coordinated with all stakeholders
  • Engage all stakeholders in planning new practices for healthier communities
  • Increase community social capital and cohesion linked to improved population health
