From: Larissa Estes, Leslie Mikkelsen, Prevention Institute, October 21, 2016
This memo describes Prevention Institute’s impressions of FaithHealth North Carolina’s (FaithHealthNC) existing assets and challenges, and issues a set of recommendations for advancing future work. Prevention Institute (PI) staff was pleased to be invited to visit with Wake Forest Baptist Health, FaithHealth Division to consider opportunities to build on existing activities to further improve population health in vulnerable communities. Through dialogue with members of FaithHealthNC Division staff (Appendix A) and a review of written materials, we considered FaithHealthNC’s current activities through the lens of quality community-wide prevention and health equity.
