Brandon Bennett, Principal Advisor, Improvement Science Consulting

Session Description

Our health and wellbeing is about more than the curative practices performed within the health system. In this session, guest presenter Brandon Bennett will highlight innovate programs that are improving health and wellbeing by working with populations in a cross-sectoral way, bringing together health care, education, judicial, and the social welfare systems.  

  • Kia Kaha: A primary care-based intervention in New Zealand that’s connecting community members with chronic care conditions, with the aim of reducing visits to Emergency Departments by alleviating depression.
  • Helping Families Initiative: A cooperative intervention in Alabama that partners judicial circuits with school districts and social workers to address chronic absenteeism in schools, increase stability in low-income families, and prevent crime in communities.
  • Cincinnati Child Poverty Collaborative: An ambitious new undertaking that is exploring the use of continuous improvement methods in the community, to stabilize families living in poverty and create a pathway for families with children to move out of poverty.
