Together, teams will take their understanding of social determinants of health to the next level as they identify actionable steps that impact the root causes of poor health outcomes in their communities.
In order for a team application to be reviewed and considered for this training, participants must have at least 1-2 other partners (up to groups no larger than 3 people) from within their department or organization to form a team. Once all partner(s) have been identified, as a TEAM you will submit ONE application. Do not submit an application for each team member. The responses to this application should reflect thoughts and experiences of your team.
Once an application has been submitted for your team, you will not be able to go back and view it. You may make changes to an application that is in progress anytime before you submit it.
If you do not have a team, please still submit an application as we may be able to assist you in finding one. Please note however, if we cannot pair you with a team we will not be able to admit you into the course and encourage that you re-apply for consideration at a future opportunity.
We strive to host inclusive and accessible events that enable all individuals, including those with disabilities to engage fully. Please let us know of any accommodations that will assist your full participation.

We use a flipped-classroom approach, so you’ll work through course content independently and then connect with a small cohort of peers weekly for live learning sessions that provide an opportunity to ask questions, share your knowledge, and learn from others.
Each session will include a facilitated discussion among class participants related to that week’s topic. Below is the schedule for our live sessions.
7 Live Learning Sessions:
Session #1: Orientation Session
Session #2: The Foundations of Public Health 3.0 - Working Upstream
Session #3: Centering Community
Session #4: Working with Partners to Track Your Impact: Using Measures and Stories
Session #5: Getting Our Own House in Order: Focusing on Self and Systems
Session #6: Paying for Change: Innovative Approaches to Funding Upstream
Session #7: Pulling it All Together
Successful completion of this course requires your participation in these sessions by video using a webcam or built-in camera on your device. Contact us if you need assistance accessing a webcam.
Each week, you must complete assigned online learning activities that include reading and watching videos. There will also be a short assignment in preparation for each live learning session that should take about an hour to complete.
Look for an email from us 2 weeks before your first live session with instructions on how to access the course online. If you don’t see an email (don’t forget to check your spam folder), email email@example.com. Make sure you sign in prior to your first live session to complete the required activities and ensure you know how to connect with your camera.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
Know the Information: Identify upstream determinants impacting specific health outcomes and shared risk factors across multiple health outcomes.
Identify a Measurable Focus: Determine particular upstream factors you want to target; identify strategies to impact upstream determinants; and describe metrics used to measure change.
Support Funding: Identify and implement collective funding approaches to support innovative efforts in this area. Communicate and work with partners to identify common goals.
Put to Practice: Assess organizational readiness or barriers to authentically engage the community in a shared risk approach.
Action Plan: Identify actionable steps to impact the root causes resulting in poor health outcomes in your community.
