Advancing the California Wellness Plan, May 6, 2015
On May 6, 2015 a group of leaders in chronic disease prevention from around the state gathered to offer midcourse guidance on advancing Let's Get Healthy California priorities and the Plan goals, as well as creating equity in health in California. Consensus from the meeting confirmed that achievement of meaningful success in each of the goal areas relies on continued collaboration, advice, action and investment from all partners and constituencies. Over the next two years, Partners would like the CDPH to: document progress while diffusing innovation, engage community in all stages of the work, and focus on primary prevention and systems change in order to create equity in health more broadly.
Advancing Prevention in the 21st Century, Commitment to Action 2014 (P21)
On February 13 and 14, 2014, CDPH hosted a statewide chronic disease prevention meeting, titled Advancing Prevention in the 21st Century, Commitment to Action 2014 (P21) in Sacramento. The meeting was co-sponsored by the California Conference of Local Health Officers (CCLHO), the County Health Executives Association of California (CHEAC), and the CCLHO/CHEAC Chronic Disease Prevention Leadership Project.
The meeting brought together statewide partners from public and private sector organizations to advance shared policy, health system, and health information strategies outlined in the Plan. P21 built on the momentum of the 2011-2013 chronic disease prevention partner forums that brought together experts and community partners from multiple organizations and sectors to solicit feedback on the Goals, Strategies and Objectives of the nine year Plan.
As a result of P21 Meeting, there is now an increased capacity to implement chronic disease prevention activities and take advantage of opportunities; and a two-year chronic disease prevention agenda with priority strategies, action steps and resource commitment for each Plan Goal.
