Connecting the Dots to Preventative Health: All Ages and Stages

9:00-9:30  Plenary Session 

Welcome to the Neighborhood! 

​How big is your neighborhood? Medical providers often think of their neighborhood as the four walls that surround the office and any patient that walks into the front door. New Hampshire neighborhoods are changing and today your neighborhood may be a city block, a town, or fifty miles in all directions. Let’s look at the new view out your window to discover how you can help your patients and your neighbors, stay healthy.

Following this session, participants will be able to: 

  • Explain the varying New Hampshire’s neighborhoods.
  • Examine state-wide data to determine the need for quality improvement in their office.
  • Establish the connection to community resources that are primed to improve population health.
