Vice President of Operations Angela Tate will participate in the National Council for Behavioral Health’s 2016 Healthy Youth Leadership Institute. Tate was selected as one of 15 participants for the esteemed program.
The National Council for Behavioral Health recently launched its fifth cohort of the Addressing Health Disparities Leadership Program (AHD). AHD convenes diverse middle managers from across the country to participate in a year-long training program where they receive expert consultation on leadership strategies to address health disparities in their communities. The National Council launched a Request for Applications (RFA) specific to alumni of AHD for the 2016 Healthy Youth Leadership Institute (HYLI). Chosen alumni from the AHD leadership program will participate in a two-day workshop to further build their capacity to address and prevent health disparities specific to youth and young adults, covering the following content areas:
- Using organizational and other data sources that impact youth and young adults to understand and address health disparities within their organizations;
- Interpret the impact of social determinants in their catchment area on health outcomes for youth and young adults;
- Identify evidence and consensus-based practices to prevent and address health issues among youth and young adults;
- Demonstrate an understanding of youth-guided and driven policies and practices in service delivery to youth and develop health disparity action plans through the lens of implementation drivers to build capacity to address health disparities within their organizations and communities for adolescents and young adults
