Stemming from last week’s hangout, Reed Tuckson shares a framework for how to integrate health considerations into recovery decision-making. http://rwjf.ws/1lr4UFN
It's an unfortunate reality that our nation spends billions of dollars to respond to disasters, which is why disaster planning must move beyond a narrow focus and instead create an optimally healthy community.

A recent +Institute of Medicine report recommends that U.S. communities, states, and federal agencies take steps to improve health in advance of disasters and offers guidance on restoring health, health care, and other aspects of community life afterward. Reed Tuckson, MD, chair of the report committee, joins Jennifer Leeflang and Paul Kuehnert on the next First Friday Google Hangout. http://rwjf.ws/1P61eFr

Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy—along with other disasters and emergencies—have devastated communities. Yet how many U.S. communities have yet to incorporate health and health care into planning for disasters and recovery? On December 4, RWJF’s Paul Kuehnert will be among those discussing the role that #publichealth plays in helping us prepare for, cope with, and learn from disasters.

There is plenty of data that reveals discouraging #health trends: We are living shorter, sicker lives. One in five of us live in neighborhoods with high rates of crime, pollution, inadequate housing, lack of jobs, and limited access to nutritious food. But there's also data that gives us glimpses of an optimistic future. 

Last week the Foundation debuted a #CultureofHealth Action Framework to turn data into action. It requires a shared vision, hard work, and the tenacity of many, but we know it is possible.

We need the partnership, the passion, and the promise of colleagues like each of you. Will you join with us in this effort?

Communities are breaking down silos—between #businesses, #schools, and other institutions, and are coming together and aligning resources to build #healthycommunities. Hear inspirational stories from communities that are working together to create sustaining change on the RWJF November 6 First Friday Google Hangout. http://rwjf.ws/1QZUNkm  #healthforall

What is holding our nation back from better health for all? Educational opportunities, civic engagement, housing, disparities, the list is as diverse as it is long. When our #wellbeing is the sum of many parts—social, economic, physical, environmental, and spiritual factors—we must measure what matters to change the trajectory of #health for Americans.

On the Foundation's next G+ #Hangout, Alonzo Plough will introduce an Action Framework, which has been developed in collaboration with the +RAND Corporation, and four Action Areas we believe are essential to improving #populationhealth and motivating cultural change. Alonzo will be joined by Georges Benjamin of +American Public Health Association, who shares the belief that more intentional collaboration between and across sectors can bend the health of our nation toward a brighter future.

“How we prepare for natural disasters is just as important as how we respond to them. Effective preparations and responses in the wake of disasters present a real opportunity to drive a Culture of Health,” says Paul Kuehnert, who leads RWJF’s efforts to build connections between health, social sectors, and health care. Hear more from Paul as he and fellow First Friday panelists discuss community preparedness on December 4. Register now: http://rwjf.ws/1P61eFr

What must be done across the country to best prepare for disasters?

A recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) report asserts that when U.S. communities, states, and federal agencies add a health lens to planning and recovery, communities can both mitigate the health damage caused by disasters and recover in ways that make them healthier and more resilient.

Please join us on December 4, from 12:15– 1 p.m., ET for a First Friday Google+ Hangout to discuss how communities can engage in cross-sector collaboration to incorporate health into disaster planning and recovery.

Susan Dentzer (Moderator), senior policy adviser to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will be joined by: 
*Paul Kuehnert, DNP, RN, director, Bridging Health and Health Care Portfolio, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
*Reed Tuckson, MD, FACP, managing partner, Tuckson Health Connections 
*Jennifer Leeflang, senior vice president, Partners in Care, Visiting Nurse Service of New York 

RSVP for the event: http://rwjf.ws/1P61eFr

During the Hangout, you can join the conversation and ask questions on Twitter with hashtag  #RWJF1stFri.

This event is part of the #RWJF1stFri series – a platform to inform RWJF audiences about lessons our partners are learning as we work to build a Culture of Health.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

No matter the setting, #nurses lead the way in innovation.

ICYMI: During our most recent #RWJF1stFri Hangout, we celebrated a few hallmarks of nursing leadership & innovation. 
Nurses can lead at all levels and in a range of locations, whether in a posh hospital boardroom or inner-city Philadelphia. They just need to be given the chance.
