Children’s Minnesota Community Connect: Linking Families, Resources and Care
July 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Jessica Block, Manager Community Health Programs, and Pam Ross, JD, MHA, Director Community Health Programs, Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota. Increasingly, efforts to address the social determinants of health provide important opportunities to influence individual and population health. Responsive programming requires thoughtful clinical integration, skilled resource navigation, and community collaboration – all anchored in a family-focused approach. Children’s Minnesota’s Community Connect program works to identify the social needs that impact childhood health and then actively partners with families and community partners to provide supportive resources. This session highlights the overall program design and implementation, including the use of technology to support aligned community referrals and partnerships.
