Good health enhances every aspect of our nation, from our economic vitality to our national security. It is key to our children’s futures. Yet too often, the prospects for good health are limited by where people live, how much money they make, or barriers imposed by discrimination based on race, gender, income, and many other factors.

RWJF is committed to working alongside others with respect, inclusion, and intentionality to build a Culture of Health that provides everyone with a fair and just opportunity for well-being.

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.

“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

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.

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.

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?
