Event description

Description

Bridges to a Thriving Nevada, an initiative of Opportunity Alliance addresses economic instability by examining the barriers and resources individuals encounter. We do this by facilitating a number of workshops designed to bring businesses, education, health and human services, and justice systems together to ask if everyone in our community is afforded a 'Fair Shot': safe and affordable housing, access to health care and education, a well-paying job and a means to achieve it. Bridges opens up conversations with and between service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty.

Bridges to Health and Healthcare: This session will review the research on healthcare across a continuum that includes access, availability, cost, quality, efficacy and communication as well as the challenges facing our under-resourced patients and families. Using Bridges constructs, we look at mental models of economic class and the hidden rules that become barriers for our most vulnerable patients/clients to overcome. We will consider the institutional and community resources and relationships necessary for collective efficacy, taking steps to create a healthy community that engages all economic classes at the decision-making table.

The cost forBridges to Healthcare including the book, Bridges to Health and Healthcare, and lunch is $99.00.
