Trainings

BARHII provides education to community groups and public agencies on health equity research and improvement strategies.

NEW TRAINING COHORTS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH STAFF AND PARTNERS 

Last year, BARHII trained over 1,000 public health staff and partners using our Housing Affordability and Health, Racial Equity, and Adaptive Leadership curricula. This year, we are integrating the elements of those trainings into cohorts that can provide more long-term capacity building support for public health staff.

+ BARHII Health and Resilient Housing Cohort: In partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and the American Planning Association, BARHII is hosting a training series for public health departments and their equity allies in planning departments to integrate equity and health in housing efforts. The cohort will focus on leveraging new funding streams and requirements from the state to advance health and housings. Sessions begin in May.
+ BARHII Leading Change Cohort: Designed by the BARHII Internal Capacity Committee which includes senior leadership from Bay Area health departments, this 6 month cohort helps public health departments lead internal change efforts focused on quality improvement for racial equity or anchor institution strategies. This is built on our extensive partnership with the Center for Social Inclusion’s Governing for Racial Equity program.
+ BARHII Reslient Communities Planning Pilot: With funding from MTC and the Bay Area Regional Collaborative, BARHII is piloting community resilience planning in San Mateo and Contra Costa that includes integrated public health and climate change considerations.
+ Public Health-Community Organizing Partnership Pilot: In collaboration with Human Impact Partners and the Public Health Alliance of Southern California, we are hosting collaborations between public health and community organizers to work on campaigns to change health outcomes.
