Training Description
The Georgia Society for Public Health Education (GASOPHE) invites you to the 2018 Summit. Join us for engaging keynote addresses, oral presentations, workshops, and poster sessions! Summit Theme: Public Health 3.0: Cross-Sector Collaboration

Public Health 3.0: Cross-Sector Collaboration is a major upgrade in public health practice to emphasize cross-sectoral policy, and systems-level actions that directly affect the social determinants of health and advance health equity. It represents a challenge to business leaders, community leaders, state lawmakers, and federal policymakers to incorporate health into all areas of governance.

Despite public health’s increasing focus on how environments impact health, our ZIP codes remain a more accurate determinant of health than our genetic codes. As a society, we have a collective responsibility to create conditions that allow all members of our communities to make healthy choices. And yet public health initiatives often exist in silos, resulting in missed opportunities to leverage the critical knowledge of communities to improve health at the local level. Public Health 3.0 calls for us to boldly expand public health to address all aspects of life that promote health and well-being, including:

  • Economic development
  • Education
  • Transportation
  • Food
  • Environment
  • Housing
  • Safe neighborhoods
