Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) in partnership with Michigan State University (MSU) is excited to announce our 2020 International Conference.
On August 19-21, 2020, you are invited to attend the 2020 International Conference: Translating Health Research and Best Practices to Advance Community Health and Economic Development. This conference will be hosted by our partner the MSU College of Human Medicine’s Division of Public Health in Flint, Michigan. The Conference will attract partnerships from across the U.S. and around the world to Flint, MI to learn about innovations in local, national, international community-campus initiatives and research.
The conference will provide community members, practitioners, and scholars a platform to highlight the experiences, skills, and best practices that explore issues of community and economic development and their impact on health equity – topics of discussion relevant to global conversations.
The conference will bring together invited community representatives, faith-based partners, administrators in higher education, academic faculty, students, health officials, funders and policy makers from around the world. Participants will learn from each other, engage in dialogue and highlight partnerships to identify research collaborations that will address health equity through community and economic development.
The 2020 International Conference will:
- Explore the institutional and systemic factors contributing to economic development and health inequity;
- Highlight examples and existing collaborations of community-campus partnerships that are advancing economic development and health equity;
- Build momentum for policy solutions that help communities and institutions navigate the current environment, and more effectively assert their interests through policy development and engagement;
- Strengthen the growing international movement to deepen community engagement through authentic community partnerships; and
- Create new partnerships amongst institutions of higher education, local communities and national stakeholder organizations to advance a public health agenda for change.
The CCPH conference is an inclusive learning environment where all are embraced for the knowledge, perspective and experience they bring. CCPH will invite both national and regional leaders to discuss health equity initiatives that are working.
