Stepping Up to Make a Difference: The Vital Role of Anchor Institutions in Community Health Improvement

Webinar //


Jan 27 2016, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM PST


From hospitals and health systems to universities, “anchor institutions” are organizations with deep roots and longevity as major employers in their communities. By adopting strategies that include local purchasing, job training, community investment and other endeavors, anchor institutions are contributing to efforts that create equitable opportunity and better meet broader community needs, priorities and challenges. Co-sponsored by APHA, Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute and Trust for America’s Health, this webinar will feature leaders and partners from anchor institutions who will describe how these strategies benefit not just their organizations but the surrounding areas they serve, and ultimately improve population health.
