Published Date: 
Tuesday, December 12, 2017

The Practical Playbook and the de Beaumont Foundation have announced a New Voices Essay Contest for students and recent graduates from health-related training programs to share their perspectives. The winning essays will be published in the second printed version of the Practical Playbook. The focus of this second edition is on the “how” of public health- health care integration. Submitted essays should address the following questions in 750 words or less:

  1. “Given the currently fragmented relationship between public health and health care and the goals of Public Health 3.0 and the Practical Playbook, what do you see as you and your discipline’s roles in bridging the gap and transforming the health system?
  2. How can professionals in your discipline create and sustain cross-sector partnerships, rather than working exclusively within discipline? (Cross-sector partnership example: a hospital working with a local housing development organization on improving indoor asthma conditions)”

Essay submissions are due on March 1st, 2018. Read the guidelines for submission here. All rights reserved©
