Cyber-Seminar Will Explore How to Sustain Community Public Health Programs
The May 8 Research-to-Reality (R2R) cyber-seminar, titled “Making It Last: Sustaining Public Health Programs in Your Community,” will focus on how positive public health outcomes can be achieved if effective programs are sustained over time. The seminar will also look at the factors that affect sustainability, including financial and political climates, the organizational setting, and project design and implementation.
Dr. Mary Ann Scheirer will provide an overview of sustainability and a framework for public health programs and research. Dr. Doug Luke will share a new sustainability assessment tool developed for practitioners, and Drs. Susan Tortolero and Alice Ammerman will present examples of how to apply the available tools and sustainability models to public health programs.
