In this webinar, members of the National MCH Workforce Development Center explain the basics of the Water of Systems Change (WSC) framework and how it is used as an organizing theory for state and local health departments to organize their efforts in addressing disparities and racism while advancing other social determinants of health (SDOH). The presenters also engage participants in a discussion and brainstorming session of how these approaches can be applied and taught in academic programs.
This webinar also explores a new concept — From the Concept to the Concrete to the Classroom — where presenters link conceptual models to what's happening in the field and then bring it full-circle to show how current and future faculty may incorporate new frameworks and implementation practices into academic programs.
• Explain the six conditions of the WSC framework.
• Identify activities that state and local health departments funded by Title V are using to advance health equity, racial justice, and SDOH.
• Expand on ideas generated about how to incorporate the WSC framework into academic settings.
