Creating Healthy Communities: Arts + Public Health in America

Jill Sonke, David Fakunle, Susan Magsamen, Kelley Sams, Stacey Springs

Today, innovation is taking root at the intersections of arts and culture, public health and community development throughout the nation. Creating Healthy Communities: Arts + Public Health in America is a national initiative designed to accelerate this innovation and to build healthy communities in alignment with national public health goals. The translational initiative engages a comprehensive agenda of research, collaboration, publication and communication to drive significant advancements in public health through evidence-based use of the arts. The session will overview the initiative and share findings from six national working group convenings, a field survey, focus groups and scoping review. It will introduce several new publications produced by the initiative, including a white paper, concept brief, and governmental advisory briefs, designed to advance evidence-based practice and policy innovation at the intersections of the arts, public health and community development.
