About this Webinar

The concept of food sovereignty has developed within Indigenous communities and is broadly applicable. It offers a framework for working toward a greater degree of local autonomy over food production and food access, alleviating food insecurity, and fostering a culture of environmental justice. While food sovereignty has received increased attention in recent years, the focused has largely been on developing a conceptual framework emphasizing local, Indigenous control over food production and distribution in Tribal communities. Less information has been disseminated on practical strategies for implementing food sovereignty initiatives in real-world settings. The Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians (HBMI) has launched a food sovereignty initiative with the aims of increasing access to nutritious food, improving food security, and strengthening connections to Wabanaki culture through the sharing of traditional approaches to food production, storage, and preparation - including planting edible landscapes, Three Sisters, and sacred medicines. Lessons learned are adding to current knowledge about how to develop, implement, and evaluate a model that is rooted in the principals of food sovereignty and designed to increase access to nutritious food, food security, and connection to traditional culture.

The Initiative is implementing coordinated, culturally-connected strategies including establishing community gardens available to youth, Elders, and over 309 individual households throughout Maliseet territory, as well as foster-children in non-Native households - this represents a reach to over 700 individuals. Youth interns have been engaged in program management, training, and evaluation activities. Opportunities to learn and share knowledge about traditional storage and recipes are being provided to community members. Existing partnerships are being leveraged to develop a sustainable model. Evaluation processes are collecting input from the community to understand the overall impact. Household gardens are being installed for each Tribal housing unit. Additional community gardens will enable food production capacity to increase over the coming years.


What you'll learn

At the end of the recording, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the concepts of food sovereignty, food security, and environmental justice
  • Describe the main programmatic aspects of the Maliseet Food Sovereignty Initiative
  • Discuss strategies for implementing and evaluating a community-based food sovereignty initiative

    About this Webinar 

    Nobody knows the lived reality of a community better than the residents themselves. The Stanford Our Voice Initiative offers community groups tools and resources to help harness and activate this wisdom, and create healthier communities for all. During this session we will walk through the Our Voice approach, and highlight the inspiring work of a Denver grandma turned “streetfighter,” who has used data and built collaborations to generate changes that support healthy living in the Montbello neighborhood of Denver, Colorado.

    Like many underresourced communities, Denver’s Montbello neighborhood has lower socioeconomic status and poorer health outcomes than wealthier areas of the city. In 2016, a Park-n-Ride was moved from Montbello to a light-rail hub 2 miles away. While the new location provides easy car access and ample parking for drivers, Montbello’s pedestrians gained a dangerous commute down a 4-lane thoroughfare, decreasing community access to jobs, health care, schools, events, and city amenities. Forty-five year Montbello resident Pam Jiner was alarmed. As leader of a local GirlTrek group, she was already focused on getting African American women walking as a form of self-care and community engagement. When GirlTrek partnered with the evidence-based Stanford Our Voice Initiative to offer advocacy training, Pam stepped up. Using the Our Voice Discovery Tool app, she and her group became "citizen scientists," documenting environmental features that affected walkability between Montbello and the transportation hub. The data they gathered – geotagged photos, narratives, ratings, and walking maps – told a collective story that the group analyzed, prioritized, and used to generate recommendations for change. Pam also invited a wide range of local stakeholders and decision-makers to walk with her and experience the barriers first-hand. Four years later, Pam shares her story as a self-proclaimed “Street Fighter,” the built environment changes that she worked with others to make, and the ripple effects at the individual, social, and policy levels.


    What you'll learn

    At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

    • List 4 specific strategies for community members to create change in local environments “from the bottom-up”
    • Describe the importance of data, including the systematic capture of local perspectives and insights, in advocating for community-level change
    • Assess the applicability of the Our Voice citizen science approach to a range of community-based efforts to address social determinants of health and improve health equity

    This webinar will be recorded and made available within 2 business days of the webinar close. Please log in to view the recording in the section "View a Recording of the Webinar." "


    More about the Our Voice Initiative 

    The evidence-based Our Voice Initiative is a not-for-profit social enterprise within the Stanford School of Medicine, offering diverse collaborators a set of tools and resources to advance community-driven solutions through citizen science. The ultimate goal of Our Voice is to advance health equity by giving everyone, regardless of age of social and economic circumstances, the opportunity to lead a healthy life. Through a remote train-the-trainer model and locally-facilitated process, community members use the multilingual Stanford Discovery Tool mobile app to record geotagged photos, narratives, ratings, and maps that document features of their environment that impact health and quality of life. After data are uploaded to a secure Stanford server, local facilitators can create user-friendly reports to return to the citizen scientists. The citizen scientists then review and analyze collective findings, prioritize areas for change, and use their own data to partner with local decision-makers and drive improvements that promote health in their local communities.

    About this Webinar

    This webinar will examine the various aspects of resource management in health care, health organizations and nonprofits. Resource management is the evidence-based process by which health care organizations effectively distribute human, capital, supply and data resources in a manner that assures operational and financial stability for the organization and quality care for individuals. 

    Traditionally in health and social service organizations, resource management and fiscal and budgeting responsibilities have been the purview of the chief financial officer, accountants, and budget analysts. However, today, front-line managers are being called upon to integrate fiscal planning and resource management into their clinical and operational responsibilities. 

    This program is intended for public health leaders who have limited knowledge, skills and experience with resource and financial management and or those wish to review and/or refresh their knowledge of fiscal principles.


    What you'll learn

    After completing this course, participants will be able to:

    • Describe the major resources in health care requiring a management approach
    • Identify strategies and tools to monitor resource utilization
    • Explain possible performance deviations through a variance analysis process
    • Identify strategies for performance improvement in the resource management process

Without public trust, American fragility will not only continue but it will worsen.

    • Identify 1-3 possible roles health professionals are already playing to address “national fragility”
