HOP team members Liam and Sonia facilitated a successful Structural Competency session at yesterday's Western Stream Forum in Sacramento! Redlining being one of the financial industries most blatant form of structural racism was a topic of discussion. Housing is California's #1 issue affecting health outcomes. #housingisahumanright #healthequity #healthcare #SDOH

We are very busy these days at HOP!

JOIN US FOR OUR UPCOMING WEBINAR and OFFICE HOURS

Autonomous Vehicles and Health Care Access
Event: The Potential Impact of Autonomous Vehicles on Health Care Access

When: Tuesday, February 11th from 11am-12pm (PST); 2pm - 3pm (EST). 30 minute "Office Hours" to follow.

Details: For the past two years, Health Outreach Partners has continued our work on transportation as a barrier to care by producing an ongoing Transportation Webinar Series. Join us for the latest installment which will explore the emerging topic of autonomous vehicles (aka self-driving cars). While this technology is not currently a mainstream part of daily transportation, it will be inevitably more prevalent in years to come. We see this as an opportunity for health professionals to begin the conversation now as to how it may be used for patients facing transportation barriers, and to be prepared when the time comes that it is more readily available.

Join us and our panel of subject matter experts:
Kevin Chambers - Full Path Transit Technology
Sheryl Gross-Glaser - Community Transportation Assn. of America
Following the webinar, the panelists will remain online for up to 30 minutes for an Office Hours session. This is a chance for participants to continue the discussion and ask more detailed questions.

Having diabetes means you are more likely to develop heart disease and have a greater chance of a heart attack or a stroke. Adults with diabetes are nearly twice as likely to die from heart disease or stroke as people without diabetes. The good news is that the steps you take to manage your diabetes can also help lower your chances of having heart disease or a stroke.

As we honor health centers this week, we want to share this post from our friends Health Center Advocacy Network highlighting Health Care for the Homeless.

A recent study found that 44% of adult health center patients have experienced some form of housing problems in their lives, such as homelessness, unstable housing, or doubling up with friends, family, or neighbors. In 2018, nearly 300 Homeless Health Center Organizations served over 988,000 individuals experiencing homelessness. Collectively, all Community, Migrant, Public Housing, and Homeless Health Centers served over 1.4 million homeless individuals. http://bit.ly/337Zfuq #sdoh #ValueCHCs #NHCW19 #PRAPARE

General information

Impact: Strong, sustainable community-based organizations to improve people's health and well being and the organizations' bottom line. History: Health Outreach Partners began in June 15, 1970, as Farmworker Health Services, Inc., a small, direct service program to migrant and seasonal farmworkers. HOP began work in five local communities along the East Coast, sending outreach staff to provide health education, health promotion and other services in small, poor, rural areas where oftentimes clinics did not yet exist. By the summer of 1973, HOP work had expanded to 15 communities along the Eastern seaboard. In January 2001, HOP’s service area encompassed 17 states. In 2001, HOP leveraged its 30 years of direct service experience and leadership in health outreach and prevention strategies into a training and technical assistance role serving Migrant and Community Health Centers nationwide. HOP believes that strong and sustainable community-based organizations are critical to improving people's health and well being and the organization's bottom line. Over the years, HOP recognized the real and growing need among Community Health Centers (CHCs) for outreach and similar grassroots models for other vulnerable populations such as day laborers, dairy workers, construction workers, and domestic workers who faced similar barriers to care, health disparities, and socio-economic disadvantages as farmworkers. In 2009, Health Outreach Partners expanded its scope in 2009 to fill that growing need and address the reality of the rapidly changing populations served by CHCs. Philosophy: HOP believes that outreach fulfills a critical need to increase access to health and social services and decrease health disparities for low-income, vulnerable, and underserved populations. HOP believes in meeting organizations at their starting point and working within their unique context. HOP Website: http://outreach-partners.org/home

50 Years in Public Health

On June 15, 1970, Health Outreach Partners began as a small, direct service program working with five local communities along the East Coast and by the summer of 1973 that number had grown to 15 communities. At that time, HOP outreach staff was stationed in small, poor, rural areas where oftentimes clinics did not yet exist. HOP continued expanding its staff to meet the increasing demands from numerous communities along the Eastern seaboard until January 2001, when its service area encompassed 17 states.

In 2001, HOP leveraged its 30 years of direct service experience and leadership in health outreach and prevention strategies into a training and technical assistance role serving Migrant and Community Health Centers nationwide.

Now, with nearly 50 years of experience in health outreach, HOP is excited to announce a new scope and mission To build strong, effective, and sustainable grassroots health models by partnering with local community-based organizations across the country in order to improve the quality of life of low-income, vulnerable, and underserved populations.
