Webinar Series: Preventing Risk Behavior by Building Resilience Among Youth

 

Join ASTHO and the CDC to learn how state health agencies can collaborate with educational and tribal health agencies to implement programs that increase youth protective factors to prevent youth health risk behavior.

The 2017 ASTHO President’s Challenge highlights that increasing protective factors is a key primary prevention strategy to prevent risk behavior such as substance misuse.

The Healthy Youth Development Prevention Research Center at the University of Minnesota is implementing Partnering for Healthy Student Outcomes, a two-part program that increases educational attainment and reduces risk behavior for middle school students though in-class, evidence-based social-emotional learning and teacher professional development. Presenters will discuss how increasing protective factors through programs improve health and academic outcomes and how states can incorporate protective factor measures in state surveillance systems.

The Oregon Health and Science University Center for Healthy Communities and Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board are collaborating to disseminate and evaluate Native STAND (Students Together Against Negative Decisions), an evidence-based program that improves decision-making skills to prevent early pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections  and substance use for Native American high school students. Presenters will describe strategies for engaging tribal health agencies to develop programs for Native American youth.

Date: June 15th, 2017

“Health Equity Research and Practice: Using a Community-Centered View of Influences on Eating, Activity, and Body Weight”

Kumanyika_0846b

Date: May 24, 12-1 PM CDT / 1-2 PM EDT

Presenter Name: Shiriki Kumanyika, PhD, MPH

Presenter Title: Research Professor, Department of Community Health and Prevention, Dornsife School of Public Health, Drexel University

UPDATE: Click here for this webinar’s recording, slides, and additional materials

There will be a group viewing of the webinar at the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, 1440 Canal Street, New Orleans LA 70112. The viewing will be in the Usdin Family Conference, 18th Floor, Room 1831A. (For information about the group viewing, contact Naomi at nking2@tulane.edu or 504-9887410.)

Sponsored by the Tulane Center of Excellence in Maternal and Child Health, Tulane Prevention Research Center, and the American Public Health Association.

About the Webinar:
Learn how to identify and describe the various community-level factors that not only influence eating, activity and body weight, but also what resources are available to address these influences. And learn how to translate community-centered influences into sustainable obesity prevention and treatment strategies. Discover examples that integrate community priorities and values into efforts to promote healthy weight.

The webinar draws from A Community-Centered View of Influences on Eating, Activity, and Body Weight, a framework that can be used to facilitate discussions among community members, academically based researchers and their community research partners. Developed by the African American Collaborative Obesity Research Network (AACORN), the framework can be used in both research and practice.

The underlying concept: approaches to obesity intervention are better framed in ‘people-oriented’ terms rather than from a narrow, problem-oriented perspective. The framework prompts answers to such questions as:

– How do eating, physical activity and weight reflect the opportunities, constraints, and issues in people’s everyday lives?

– What aspects of people’s everyday lives and circumstances must be considered in order to develop appropriate, effective, and sustainable intervention approaches?

– How can interventions on obesity support high quality of life and community priorities that are broader than food, activity, or weight?

About the Presenter: 

Shiriki Kumanyika, PhD, MPH is founder and chair of the African American Collaborative Obesity Research Network (AACORN) and a research professor at the Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health in the Department of Community Health and Prevention. She is also Emeritus Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine following a 15-year tenure on the faculty. Dr. Kumanyika is immediate past president of the American Public Health Association (APHA) and has been principal investigator or co-investigator on randomized multi-center and single-center clinical trials related to diet, obesity, weight control, and cardiovascular disease. Her research has focused on the development and evaluation of culturally appropriate lifestyle interventions for African Americans and the influences of food and beverage marketing on African Americans’ food purchases and consumption.
