Pop Health Forum Meeting MINUTES Tuesday November 26, 2002

Tue Nov 26 21:29:47 PST 2002
One of our best attended and lively meetings!
Mission Statement exercise carried out expertly by Amy Hagopian:
we reviewed history of such (from Business to NGO's), presented many
examples, considered criteria for evaluating mission statements, then took
5 "bachelors" (drafts from PHF members) to choose amongst and we had a
most lively discussion
-Amy will take the ideas expressed and work them into a draft that will be
considered at the next meeting
Recent efforts presenting population health ideas in Summit, a Seattle
public school, were reviewed.
-One of the members, Liz Mogford, will work next quarter on developing a
curriculum and she would like others to help work on this (if interested,
email her at lmogford at u.washington.edu
-other opportunities exist for presenting these ideas to other schools
(email Stephen if interested in working on this) to gain more experience
Population Health poster draft was presented
-there was a feeling by some that it had too much material, and could be
made into a series of posters, with the main message on one, and then
steps to take on another
-focusing on one step, to work for justice was stressed
-pdf file with the current draft (11 by 17 inch format)is attached, and
comments are appreciated.
Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies at UW has a possible opportunity
for a student taking an introduction to labor studies course to work with
us to get the word out to organized labor. Contact Kristina Anderson,
Director 543-7946 (pcls at u.washington.edu) if interested in your working
with a UW student to get the word out to labor.

Send a message to listproc at u.washington.edu Leave the subject line blank
In the body of the message type: subscribe pophealth YOUR NAME (not email
address or you and I will get an error message)
Then tell me to take you off the other list.
