The overlay of economic class intersects every aspect of the health sector, including public health policy, health disparities, patient care, and community health initiatives. This overview will explore how the economic class lens can be utilized by health professionals, institutions and their communities to improve health outcomes and increase productivity. Ms. Dreussi-Smith will share what the newly formed Bridges Into Health Community of Practice has been working on to date. Strategies range from “what you can change on Monday morning” to long term community planning and ultimately, policy change. All concepts are based on Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities (Payne, DeVol, Dreussi-Smith).
