Why You Should Attend Reform to Transform Spring 2015… #R2T

Recently, I have written blogs about everything from Black Men’s Health to connecting poverty and housing to good health.

Our next Reform to Transform forum event goes a step further — on Wednesday, April 29, we will explore how connecting comprehensive, affordable, quality clinical care with community/social support can and will improve population health. Integrating the two in meaningful, sustainable ways, is the perfect combination for better health.

It is possible, however, that I may have not yet convinced you to join us at the forum or be part of ongoing conversations/planning to really make Connecticut one of the healthiest states.

So here is a short list of articles and videos I believe will prompt you to do both.  Like I said in a previous blog, this forum is a chance for all who are engaged in keeping Connecticut healthy to gather and discuss a blueprint for working together.

Hope to see you there! Happy reading/viewing.
