Weinstein, D.O., M.S.Immediate past CEO and PresidentDartmouth-Hitchcock Health System In the United States and in New Hampshire, some populations suffer from greater disparities in health than others. Those disparities are caused not only by fundamental differences in health status across segments of the population, but also because of conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, and age. Dr. Weinstein will review the state of health disparities in our communities and explore the underlying conditions and root causes that contribute to them. He will describe effective strategies that communities can use to advance health equity, including in the area of cancer control and prevention. Finally, he will examine examples of community-based solutions that address health inequities. These examples include both deliberate and indirect interventions that promote equal opportunity for health, spanning health and non-health sectors accounting for the range of factors that contribute to health inequity in the US. 10:00-10:30 – Networking Break / Exhibits    10:30-11:30 – A Panel of Experts Leading the Way to Advancing Population Health in NH  Rudi Fedrizzi, MDDirector of Community Health Clinical Integration, Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene Whitney Hammond, MSWChronic Disease Director, Division of Public Health Services, New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services Anna Thomas, MPHDeputy Health Director, Manchester Health Department Steve Norton, MPP Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning & Government Relations, Elliot Hospital 11:30-12:30 – Lunch / Exhibits / Network 12:30-1:30 – Hot Topic Breakout Sessions – Select one. *See descriptions below.

Recurrence of cancer is also influenced by behavior and lifestyle. Concord Hospital’s Anticancer Lifestyle Program (ACLP) is a 12 week evidence based lifestyle transformation program for people diagnosed with cancer. This session will describe the program’s approach and outcomes as well as the various ways which an organization or institution can offer the program. Moderated by Jody Blumberg, DIrector, Payson Center for Cancer Care at Concord Hospital C.

Yet about half of the adolescents in New Hampshire are not fully vaccinated. This session will improve your understanding of the HPV vaccine, why it’s critical to increase vaccination rates in New Hampshire, and highlight the work of the New Hampshire HPV Vaccine Working Group and other efforts in our state. D. Advancing Equity for All When Integrating Clinical and Public Health Efforts for Cancer Control and Prevention Trinidad Tellez, MD, Director, Office of Health Equity, NH DHHS We all aim to provide the highest quality care and services to all our clients/patients – yet, how do we know we are doing so equally effectively? Disparities in access, use and outcomes persist across health care services, public health, and social determinants of health domains – what are essential elements for us to be able to identify those disparities and then work to address them? This session will describe cancer health disparities, review proven strategies for promoting cancer equity, and provide a framework for improving our own organization’s capacity to provide high quality care and services for all. E. Partnering for Success: Supporting our patients in adopting healthier habits after a cancer diagnosis and into survivorship Gwenda Graham, MSN, PhD, ANP-BC, Nurse Practitioner, Department of Hematology/Oncology, The Center for Cancer CareMeredith Kolodze, LICSW, OSW-C, Oncology Social Worker, The Center for Cancer Care, Exeter Hospital There is a unique opportunity to help support healthier habits and secondary prevention after a patient has completed treatment for cancer. It is important that we meet people where they are at and help empower them to improve their health, rather than demand that they improve it. We will be providing tools and techniques to help all members of the oncology team support patients in developing healthier habits after a cancer diagnosis.
