PHC Annual Meeting

November 16, 2018, 8:30 to 11 am
Auditorium, Hypertherm, 71 Heater Road, Lebanon.

Keynote Address: State Health Planning in Vermont Through a Health Equity Lens
Heidi Klein, Director of Planning and Health Care Quality at the Vermont Department of Health

The Vermont Department of Health has spent the last year engaged with multiple community partners in trying to answer two key questions:  1) what do we know about the health of Vermonters; and 2) what should we do to improve health? These are standard questions in conducting a State Health Assessment (Q#1) and developing a State Health Improvement Plan (Q#2).  This year, however, partners decided to add another critical question: what would need to be in place in 5 years to improve health equity?  Heidi Klein will share how this focus on health equity reshaped the process used, the data collected, and the framework moving forward for the State Health Improvement Plan.
