Building Healthier Communities: TEDMED 2016

  1. 1. Live, learn, work, play Building Healthier Communities TEDMED 2016
  2. 2. Speakers and Hive Innovators reimagined healthy communities in their TEDMED Talks. RWJF honored seven U.S. communities as 2016 Culture of Health Prize Winners for making great strides toward better health and well-being. From the Program From RWJF Delegates shared ideas for programs and policies that they’d like to see in their own locales, while online participants submitted their visions on Twitter and Facebook. Every idea was displayed in the Hive exhibit. From the TEDMED Delegates We often think of health in terms of health care. But our communities—the places where we live, learn, work, and play—also have lasting impact on our health and well-being, as do the forces shaping these environments. So at TEDMED 2016, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) challenged Delegates to re-imagine our perception of health care. Building a Culture of Health
  3. 3. The Themes 1. Micro shifts can have macro impact 2. Communities are innovation test kitchens 3. Mind the gaps 4. Build community into the business model 5. Art acts as a community cure 6. Our cities define our selves 7. It takes a village 8. Strangers aren’t dangers
  4. 4. Want to change the world? Start small. Pandemics such as Ebola begin with a single case. Speaker Jeremy Farrar focuses on community-level responses to stem pandemic destruction, while Kinnos fights back with visible contamination sprays that reduce hospital error. Speaker and healthy-eating evangelist Gunhild Stordalen believes that our individual actions reverberate across the global food system. We encourage radical candor, support, and activities among our neighbors. - Delegate in Narberth, PA What if we started with healthy bake sales at schools to encourage nutritious diets at an early age? - Delegate in Durham, NC Micro shifts can have macro impact 1. ” “ Photo credit: TEDMED
  5. 5. Your local neighborhood can serve as your lab. Health clinicians can look to the medical marijuana dispensaries in their neighborhoods to emulate their personal, customized method of care, as speaker David Casarett suggests. In the Columbia River Gorge region of the Pacific Northwest, new partnerships—like dentists paired up with local school districts—help connect the dots in health prevention. And community facilities can be remixed, too: In New Hampshire, fire stations also serve as safe havens and intake centers for people with addictions. Grocery stores can act like demo kitchens to teach citizens to prepare healthy foods. - Delegate in Boston, MA Community health clinics could prescribe more than medication: food, housing, or heat. - Delegate in Portland, ME Libraries should lend more than books, like bikes to keep community members moving. - Delegate in San Diego, CA Communities are innovation test kitchens 2. ” “ Photo credit: iStock
  6. 6. The key to healthier communities often lies between the cracks, in what is overlooked and rarely addressed. Speaker Susie Baldwin helps physicians go beyond the usual vital signs to identify victims of human trafficking. Speaker Sue Klebold has devoted her life to advancing mental illnesses treatment before tragic events occur. Meanwhile, Watsi connects donors to patients in need so their life-saving treatments can be funded, no matter how underserved their communities. Mind the gaps 3. ” “ Communities need more adult education programs to up-skill adult learners and open up new job opportunities. - Delegate in Philadelphia, PA Identify the biggest health challenges in specific areas and create local campaigns to address them; employ undercover healthcare ambassadors to penetrate these sights. - Delegate in Bryce, VA Chicago is resource-segregated. We should create more resources, like pharmacies and grocery stores, and distribute them more evenly across the city, while improving the safety of public transit stops. - Delegate in Chicago, ILPhoto credit: TEDMED
  7. 7. Business can benefit all. As part of the Culture of Health community winners, a town in Missouri called Pagedale established a nonprofit community land trust to expand residents’ access to home ownership and strengthen community ties. And Benefunder connects donors to underfunded research needs by letting backers identify the specific projects they want to support, resulting in a funding model that pays dividends. Partnerships drive mutual value: Pair up school programs and local farmers to provide healthy food to our kids. - Delegate in Philadelphia, PA Our local Starbucks should host community events in the evening. It’s good for the business and good for the neighborhood. - Delegate in San Mateo, CA Let’s encourage partnering between local businesses to bring new customers to our farmer’s market. - Delegate in Suffolk, VA Build community into the business model 4. ” “ Photo credit: RWJF
  8. 8. Modern art therapy comes in all forms. Speaker Emi Mahmoud believes that spoken word can teach community youth empathy and empowerment. And in Louisville, Kentucky, a vacant lot became a drum-circle venue while a liquor store turned into an art-making space to help residents use art to address community health needs. For speaker Ted Meyer, art made by patients’ scars not only serves as a creative outlet, but also a tool that depicts their care realities so medical school students can learn from patients’ experiences. School art programs can partner with hospitals or elderly care homes to display inspiring works. - Delegate in Jacksonville, FL Meditative mindsets could benefit our nation’s decision makers with daily pauses or dances, and shared leadership practices. - Delegate in Washington, DC Art acts as a community cure 5. ” “ Repurpose unused land and open spaces in underserved communities as places for creative arts and other passions. - Delegate in Detroit, MI Photo credit: TEDMED
  9. 9. The physical environment is a critical health factor. Speaker David R. Williams believes addressing housing inequality is critical to understanding why some people live longer than others. He studies the links between racial housing disparities and lifelong health conditions. And The Kavli Foundation’s HUMAN Project seeks to understand the human condition by incorporating and studying extensive data like environmental measurements, not just biological and behavioral data. Our cities define our selves 6. Signage and ads that communicate health awareness and public transportation can promote healthy activities everywhere. - Delegate in Portland, OR Rent-stabilization programs can ensure city dwellers can renew a lease without excessive rent-price increases. - Delegate in Manhattan, NY Clean water builds trust and health among community members and city leaders. - Delegate in San Diego, CA ” “ Photo credit: TEDMED
  10. 10. Together, we can change our neighborhoods. In North St. Louis, Missouri, 24 municipalities came together to create 24:1, a coalition of counties determined to build stronger communities, engaged families, and successful children. From fitness classes to senior centers to meetings with the mayor, the initiative brings change by bringing people together. On the West Coast, Santa Monica, California, uses another collaboration model: Citizens help the homeless by bringing together police and fire departments; city human services; health and housing offices; and nonprofit service providers. Expand book exchange programs that work to bring neighbors together to help build healthy minds. - Delegate in Brooklyn, NY Local diners can become places to host meals and events for neighborhood groups and nonprofits. Invite local politicians! - Delegate in Decatur, GA It takes a village 7. ” “ Photo credit: RWJF
  11. 11. Shake a hand, extend a hand. In a world driven by technology, Delegates reminded us that more than ever, people need to come together. Speaker Larissa MacFarquhar told the story of extreme altruists who feel driven to save the lives of total strangers. And the Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe in Washington state puts out the welcome mat for neighbors from surrounding communities. When the reservation opened a gym, commercial fishermen from a neighboring town were invited to join for free. Even the tribe’s small police force is integrated with law enforcement officers from other nearby areas. Strangers aren’t dangers 8. Bus stops can include posters that prompt riders to talk to other members of the community. - Delegate in Providence, RI Trash pickup and leaf removal can be reframed as an opportunity to exercise and bring people together from all walks of life. - Delegate in Chevy Chase, MD Multimodal and economically accessible infrastructure integrates areas of varying socioeconomic status. - Via #HealthyCommunities on Twitter ” “ Photo credit: RWJF
