NLC University: Partnering for Vibrant Cities: The Role of Evidence, Data to Inform and Sustain Partnerships to Improve Health Outcomes

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
November 15, 2017

Every day, mayors and city leaders make decisions specific to transportation, public safety, housing and economic development, that impact the quality, affordability, and accessibility of these environments. These quality of these environments impact the health and well-being of residents and in many ways, shape how well and how long we live.  As such, it is critical to better align resources and capacity to improve outcomes for all city residents.  Municipal leaders have many opportunities, often unexplored or underdeveloped, to collaborate with health systems, and other key sector stakeholders to strengthen their efforts to build healthier communities. This training seminar will explore effective city-level models for cross-sector partnerships and build the capacity of city leaders to engage with hospitals, health plans and state Medicaid agencies, community development and other essential partners. Cities will have the opportunity to hear from city, state and national experts on best practices for building, strengthening, and sustaining collaborations for health.

City officials who participate in this NLC University seminar will build new skills and enhance their ability to tailor strategies and efforts to:

  • Discuss the role of data and evidence in advancing city policy, practice and programs;
  • Explore how to effectively use data and evidence to inform the value proposition to engage cross-agency and cross-sector stakeholders;
  • Explore developing shared value propositions based on evidence and data with key sector stakeholders;
  • Making the case for effective partnerships to improve the health and well-being of city residents.
  • Participants will work in small groups to explore the use of data and evidence in advancing city issues through the effective engagement of cross-sector stakeholders.
