Upstream Health Leadership Training: Restoring Health to Healthcare

January 26, 2018 - January 27, 2018
Seattle, Washington

Despite spending more on healthcare than the rest of the world combined, the United States lags behind 30-60 countries in various health outcomes. Much of this can be attributed to the social determinants of society that are disadvantageous to the majority.

WHO: anyone who cares about our health as a society and is curious as to why our health outcomes are so much worse than other westernised countries, and how we can work to improve them.

WHY:  to develop a community of like-minded people and facilitate working groups with the aim of improving health and well-being for our communities.

WHAT: this is a series of community-building and population health production courses conceived by the Upstream Health Leadership Training team.  This workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Stephen Bezruchka from the UW School of Public Health, as well as other community leaders and co-sponsored by Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility.

We ALL need to re-focus our efforts on creating a healthy society.

WHEN:

Friday, Jan. 26, 2018: 5:30pm - 9:00pm Workshop & dinner
Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018: 8:30 - 4.30pm Workshop & lunch
