NADRC Webinar: Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map - State and Local Public Health Partnerships to Address Dementia

November 28, 2018

Tuesday, December 18, 2018, 2:00-3:00 PM ET

Register for the Webinar

The 2018-2023 Road Map is informed by four Essential Services of Public Health:

  1. Assure a competent workforce
  2. Monitor and evaluate
  3. Develop policies and mobilize partnerships
  4. Educate and empower the nation

Action within each of these four domains is guided by three core principles: to ensure health equity, to facilitate collaboration across multiple sectors, and to leverage resources for sustained impact.

In this webinar, Dr. Lisa McGuire will describe the newly released Road Map, and Susan Engels will describe how Washington designed and is implementing a successful program aligned with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Healthy Brain Initiative.
