    CDC 2016 Cancer Summit REPORT - Looking Back and Looking Ahead: Collaborating to Advance Cancer Control in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2016 Cancer Summit titled “Looking Back and Looking Ahead: The State of Cancer Control in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities” convened current and former Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) tribal grantees from five CDC regions, CDC staff and Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership members from April 26 to 28, 2016 at the Grand Traverse Resort in Traverse City, Michigan. The summit provided a forum for open dialogue about topics of interest as well as an opportunity to work together in teams to collaboratively identify priority areas and strategies for cancer prevention control in Indian Country for the next decade.  This summit followed the September 2005 summit in Tucson, Arizona and the June 2009 summit in Denver, Colorado.

    Keynote speakers and panelists provided information and insight at the beginning to set the tone for succeeding discussions among DCPC Tribal grantees by CDC regions. These discussions culminated in the creation of action plans to improve outcomes in cancer control for American Indian and Alaska Native communities over the next ten years.

    This report, developed by George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center, summarizes summit proceedings, presentation highlights and key decisions made by attendees, as well as evaluation results completed and generated by attendees.

    Communicating to Advance the Public’s Health: Workshop Summary

    The Institute of Medicine’s (IOM’s) Roundtable on Population Health Improvement brings together individuals and organizations that represent different sectors in a dialogue about what is needed to improve population health, from looking beyond the health care delivery setting, to exploring solutions to address the social and environmental factors that shape health outcomes. On September 22, 2014, the roundtable held a workshop to discuss some of the science of health communication, audiences, and messaging, and to explore what it will take to generate widespread awareness, acceptance, and action to improve health, including through the entertainment media, the news media, and social media.

    Community Health Advisor

    This interactive tool by Health Partners Institute for Education and Research and Partnership for Prevention generates 30-year national, state and county-level estimates of various measures of health behavior, health impact, and medical care costs.

    Community Health Improvement Navigator

    Our health and well-being are products of not only the health care we receive and the choices we make, but also the places where we live, learn, work, and play. Community health improvement (CHI) is a process to identify and address the health needs of communities. Because working together has a greater impact on health and economic vitality than working alone, CHI brings together health care, public health, and other stakeholders to consider high-priority actions to improve community health.

    The CDC Community Health Improvement Navigator (CHI Navigator) is a website for people who lead or participate in CHI work within hospitals and health systems, public health agencies, and other community organizations. It is a one-stop-shop that offers community stakeholders expert-vetted tools and resources for:

    Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI)

    Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) to combat obesity, heart disease, and cancer are major components of the Community Health Data Initiative. This dataset provides key health indicators for local communities and encourages dialogue about actions that can be taken to improve community health (e.g., obesity, heart disease, cancer). The CHSI report and dataset was designed not only for public health professionals but also for members of the community who are interested in the health of their community. The CHSI report contains over 200 measures for each of the 3,141 United States counties. Although CHSI presents indicators like deaths due to heart disease and cancer, it is imperative to understand that behavioral factors such as obesity, tobacco use, diet, physical activity, alcohol and drug use, sexual behavior and others substantially contribute to these deaths.
