HI-5: Exploring Community-Wide Interventions That Have Health Impact in Five Years
CDC and the National Network of Public Health Institutes are cohosting the “HI-5: Exploring Community-Wide Interventions That Have Health Impact in Five Years” webinar Tuesday, August 9, 2:00–3:30 pm (EDT). During this webinar, experts from CDC and other national organizations will discuss CDC’s new Health Impact in Five Years (HI-5) initiative. Registration is required.
The HI-5 initiative highlights non-clinical, community-wide approaches with a proven track record. Each intervention is associated with improved health within five years and is reported to be cost-effective or cost-saving over the lifetime of the population or even earlier. Public and private organizations can use this list to assess the scientific evidence for short-term health outcomes and overall cost impacts of community-wide approaches.
The webinar is part of a series that will describe the full range of evidence-based, community-wide approaches that CDC has identified. Participants will hear real world examples about how local- and state-level organizations have implemented these approaches to meet the needs of their communities.
