National Public Health Week Is April 6 – 12, 2015

Join the effort to make America a Healthy Nation.  This is National Public Health Week.  Each individual can have a direct impact on our health care system; learn how by visiting the National Health Week web site linked below and getting the Toolkit.  Know that good health is an important aspect of personal wealth.  Learn how you can maintain good health and help your loved ones to be healthy.

April is also National Organ Donation Month.  A single complete donor can save the lives of 8 people and enhance the quality of life for dozens more.  Nationally, there are more than123K people waiting for organ transplants; in CT, as of March 27, 2015, there were 1,128 people waiting for a kidney transplant, and another 20 who are waiting for a combined kidney and pancreas transplant. A transplant greatly enhances the quality of life (by removing people from dialysis) and reducing the cost of health care in the long term.

There was also a Historic eight-person kidney transplant at Yale this year.  Read about that here: http://goo.gl/Lo86lj

Help Promote National Public Health Week in your community or organization

Right now, the U.S. spends MORE and gets LESS when it comes to health care and public health outcomes. This is the defining challenge of our generation – a challenge that we, the public health community, are uniquely positioned to help overcome.

That’s why, during National Public Health Week 2015, the public health community is rallying around a goal of making the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation — by 2030.

In April, we’ll create a new groundswell of support for the changes that must be made within our health system to realize this goal.

Get started here by accessing all the tools and tips you'll need for having a successful National Public Health Week 2015!

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love. That being the case, the 2018 Open Streets Summit in New Orleans felt like a family reunion of sorts. It was rejuvenating to see old and new friends who share our passion for open streets and are working tirelessly to create healthier, happier, and more connected communities across the world. The event, which took place on September 15-16, brought together more than 50 leaders who currently organize open streets programs or are interested in bringing the...

The Justice League

We first published this story about the RVA League for Safer Streets and its co-founders, Jawad Abdu and Paul Taylor, in January. Sadly, Jawad Abdu died of a heart attack on July 13, 2019. We are reposting the article to commemorate Abdu's work and commitment to his community, which will be carried forward by his partners Taylor and Robert Morris.  In less than three years, the RVA League for Safer Streets, a basketball-plus-education program for young men from Richmond communities with high crime rates, has had an extraordinary peace-making impact in the lives of participants—and on the city at large. Its founders were informed by experience and insight wrought by decades behind bars, which is why the League is dedicated to keeping people out of prison, and helping those who are returning to become successful members of their communities. The article that follows contains audio quotes from the League's founders about pivotal experiences in their lives in and outside of prison.

For the Love of the Game—and the Neighborhood

For 13 summers running, Hoops in the Hood has offered a safe, healthy and enriching outlet for Chicago children in nearly 20 historically under-invested neighborhoods. With support from LISC and State Farm, the program has had a tranformative impact on its participants, and their communities.

Walking the Talk of Racial Equity

LISC Phoenix’s Dominic Braham is a 2019 PLACES fellow with the Funder’s Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities (alongside LISC NYC's Grace Chung). When the fellowship brought him to Newark, NJ for a site visit, it sparked a realization: Braham saw that he had to think critically about pushing for racial equity from both an individual and an institutional perspective. In a blog for the Funder’s Network, he shares the toolbox he’s been assembling to challenge the status quo in community development leadership, and to convert conversations about change into action.
