Developing Public-Private Partnerships to Improve Employee and Population Health
Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2020, 2-3:00 p.m. ET

Sponsor:  CDC and NACDD 6|18 Teams

Speakers:

  • Christa-Marie Singleton, Senior Medical Advisor – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Chris Miles – Principal – Leavitt Partners
  • Lauren Remspecher, Senior Director Member Engagement and Communications – St. Louis Area Business Health Coalition

Join us, as Christa-Marie Singleton from CDC, Chris Miles from Leavitt Partners, Lauren Remspecher from St. Louis Area Business Health Coalition, and Glenn Studebaker from Missouri Department of Health and Human Services share their perspectives on developing partnerships between state health departments and employers to advance the public’s health. Developing partnerships between public health and the private sector is critical to enhancing not just the well-being of employees, but the community and population as a whole.  This webinar will help state health departments understand the value of partnering with businesses, how to find them, and how to effectively communicate with these groups. State Health Departments will also learn about CDC’s 6|18 initiative, an effort to improve health and control healthcare costs by targeting six common health conditions and behaviors. Attendees will gain strategies and resources they can use and customize when connecting and collaborating with employers.
