bout this Recording

Today’s challenges, like climate change and COVID-19, are complex and require public health professionals to lead large-scale changes that no one person or organization can solve alone. The Public Health Learning Network has developed the Learning Agenda Toolkit to help workforce specialists and other leaders develop a coordinated system of effective, efficient, and quality learning to address these challenges.
This webinar reviews the origins of the toolkit and explores its key elements, including a conceptual learning framework, rapid assessment tool, discussion guide, and learning approach planning tool, to help build a robust learning agenda and implement systems changes that improve health.


What you'll learn

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

  • Review key elements of the Learning Agenda Toolkit.
  • Consider how different learning approaches, implemented over time, can be used to build collective competency to address community challenges.
  • Learn how to be involved in future pilot testing efforts for the toolkit.

    • Dr. Jennifer Sumner is a clinical psychologist and Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). She is the Director of the Sumner Stress Lab at UCLA, and her program of research lies at the intersection of the psychological and physical health consequences of trauma exposure. The work of the Sumner Stress Lab examines how experiences of trauma and severe stress relate to accelerated aging and risk for chronic disease, with a particular focus on cardiovascular disease—the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. The goal of this research is to delineate the pathways by which trauma and severe stress get embedded under the skin to contribute to poor health and to use this information to develop targeted interventions to offset risk for adverse health outcomes after trauma. Dr. Sumner received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Pomona College and her Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology from Northwestern University. She completed her predoctoral internship program at the Charleston Consortium (Traumatic Stress Track) and received postdoctoral training as an Epidemiology Merit Fellow at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Prior to joining UCLA, Dr. Sumner was an Assistant Professor of Behavioral Medicine at the Center for Behavioral Cardiovascular Health at Columbia University Medical Center.
