State Approaches to Addressing Health Disparities. Year Developed: 2017. Source: National Conference of State Legislatures and Association of State and Territorial Health Officials. Presenter(s): Shavon Arline-Bradley; Jim Abeler, Sarah Hernandez. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate. Length: 58 minutes.

Annotation: Health disparities—differences in health and health care experienced by groups based on social, economic and environmental factors—persist across the nation. Each year, health disparities lead to significant human and financial costs, as certain people experience poorer living conditions, worse health status and treatment outcomes, and more difficulty accessing health care services than their peers in other population groups. State legislators have pursued various policy approaches to reduce health disparities in their communities and states. Through legislative tracking, NCSL has identified multiple strategies being pursued by states, including increasing workforce diversity, improving cultural competence in health care services and addressing the social determinants of health. This webinar, sponsored by NCSL and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, discusses why state policymakers may consider addressing health disparities, and explore state policy approaches and examples.

Crafting Richer Public Health Messages: Messaging and the 5 Essential Public Health Law Services. Year Developed: 2017. Source: Network for Public Health Law. Presenter(s): Scott Burris; Doug Blanke; Benjamin D. Winig. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 90 minutes.

Annotation: The 2016 Five Essential Public Health Law Services framework reflects the key scientific, legal, and advocacy activities necessary to support the timely adoption and diffusion of effective public health legal and policy interventions. The services are not all purely legal, nor are they provided only by lawyers. Instead, researchers and scientists, government officials and practitioners, and business, community, faith, and other leaders may all be involved in any given activity. The Five Essential Public Health Law Services were developed from and based upon public health law success stories, like that of tobacco control. In this webinar, the presenters explain their research over the past year exploring how this framework can be employed to more successfully advance public health law initiatives, with specific focus on preemption, housing code enforcement, and early childhood care and education. Presenters also discuss how the messaging used to advance public health laws, when crafted in a way that embraces the full range of intuitive moral values, may lead to broader community and political support for successfully developing, enacting and then enforcing new legal solutions.

Special Instructions: Slides and videos for all three parts of this series are available on the series link.

Public Health Law: A Tool to Address Emerging Health Concerns. Year Developed: 2016. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Presenter(s): Montrece McNeill Ransom, JD, MPH, Matthew Penn, JD, MLIS, Karen DeSalvo, MD, MPH, MSc. Type: n.a.. Level: Introductory. Length: n.a..

Annotation: Law is a critical tool for protecting and promoting the health of the public. Some of history's greatest public health successes, such as childhood immunization and safer workplaces, would not have been possible without changes to laws and policies. But public health law also involves evaluating laws, even ones not traditionally seen as health related, and exploring their impact on individuals and communities. Such analyses provide evidence that policymakers can use to inform future lawmaking. Increased understanding of the influence of social determinants on health has brought about innovative policy approaches including Health in All Policies. Public health law is an integral part of these initiatives and seeks to contribute to the advancement and promotion of health for all. In this session of Public Health Grand Rounds, we celebrate the 15th anniversary of CDC's Public Health Law Program. Speakers will provide an overview of public health law, describe how it is an essential component of contemporary public health practice, and discuss the emergence of modern concepts of public health law, including legal epidemiology.

Breaking Down Infant Mortality: Achieving Measureable Impact through the CoIIN Approach. Year Developed: 2015. Source: Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs.

The CoIIN framework is a tool that enables states, MCH officials and all stakeholders to break down the complex, multifaceted issue of infant mortality into practical, achievable steps for improvement – first, by organizing actions by periods of engagement and then by specific strategies.

Public Health Approaches to Reducing U. S. Infant Mortality. Year Developed: 2012. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Presenter(s): Wanda Barfield, MD, MPH, FAAP; Denise D’Angelo, MPH; Rachel Moon, MD, FAAP; Michael C. Lu, MD, MS, MPH. Type: Video Lecture. Level: Advanced. Length: 100 minutes. Link to all Grand Rounds presentations

Annotation: This session of Grand Rounds explored public health approaches to reducing U.S. infant mortality. This session also coincided with the 20th anniversary of Child Health Month inaugurated by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Both nationally and globally, infant mortality is a key measure of population health. The infant mortality rate, the rate at which babies less than one year of age die, has continued to steadily decline in the US over the past several decades; data from 2010 shows 6.15 deaths per 1,000 live births. Despite overall progress, racial disparities in infant mortality persist and preventable infant deaths continue to occur. Public health agencies including CDC/ATSDR, health care providers, and communities of all ethnic groups must partner to further reduce the infant mortality rate in the United States. This joint approach should address the social, behavioral, and health risk factors that affect birth outcomes. This session of Grand Rounds highlighted accomplishments and explored public health, clinical, and policy strategies to improve birth outcomes, with special consideration of high risk individuals, families, and communities. An accompanying video, Beyond the Data, discusses new updates in infant mortality reduction.
