Event Details

Creating Accountable Communities:

Catalyzing Integrative Approaches to Obesity and Mental Health

 A September 2014 working conference to accelerate the implementation of place-based health creation.

 September 22nd, 2014 - Duluth, Minnesota

 Who Should Attend

Leaders in Health Care, Community Benefit Representatives, Public Health and Human Services, Community Service Organizations, Education, Businesses, Elected Officials, Philanthropic and Faith-based organizations and Health Insurers.


The Affordable Care Act has created a requirement for healthcare leaders to think differently, to learn a public health lexicon and to reach outside of hospital walls for new allies and collaborations. Public health and community development practitioners and leaders are realizing the need to redouble their efforts to improve the health and socio-economic conditions in communities by understanding the complex relationships between community issues such as food access, employment, mental health, and health. As well, clinicians are adopting new clinical approaches that utilize collaborative teams, address the root cause of disease and embrace the art and science of connection.

Together these constituencies are now in a position to align strategies to effectively move the needle on place based health creation and develop collaborative stewardship of our health commons - the multitude of resources available for medical services and health promotion. This one day working conference is designed for health care, human service, clinical and community leadership interested in accessing and developing the tools necessary to improve community benefit, develop new collaboratives, support an effective Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) process, respond to the requirements of an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model and support the development of Accountable Communities for Health.

With a focus on two unique spheres within the health commons - food and mental health - attendees will learn from national leaders and engage in facilitated dialogue and workshops to explore shared solutions for two of the top most identified community health needs – obesity prevention and mental health.

 Conference Goals

  • Create a cross-sector cohort of community based prevention leaders and health commons stewards.
  • Learn community health creation strategies and linkages to social determinants of health
  • Translate the foundational role of integrative disciplines in health creation
  • Improve marketing, communications and fluency in the language of community prevention
  • Understand tools and strategies to support public health, business, community and healthcare collaborations and relationships
  • Develop shared understanding of interplay and approaches to mental health and obesity related health issues.
