Achieving the goals of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) will require new partnerships between health care delivery and community health systems and services. Health education specialists have new opportunities to broaden their impact and participate in emerging models of service delivery geared toward primary prevention and chronic disease management. This webinar will explore how a national non-profit voluntary organization, the American Cancer Society, is re-aligning its work to enhance its integration with health care and public health enterprises. It will also address the role of hospital-based population health initiatives and community benefit, as hospitals are increasingly working outside their walls to address the socioeconomic and behavioral determinants of health. A successful community benefit department now requires individuals with public health and health education backgrounds who have the skills to effectively collaborate with community partners in order to promote the health of the entire population.
