Dr. Michael Royster workshop

Institute for Public Health Innovation

As part of its strategy to promote a culture of health across the region, in 2015 The Cameron Foundation engaged Dr. Michael Royster of the Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPHI) to facilitate a series of workshops and technical assistance. The sessions, which are co-sponsored by individual jurisdictions, engage stakeholders to identify, develop and implement best practice community models to combat health disparities. The work focuses on health indicators that are specific to the locality. Prince George County officials kicked off the first training, which convened stakeholders across many sectors, including health, education, public safety, community development, human services, faith groups, and several departments within the county government. Other localities working with IPHI include the cities of Petersburg and Hopewell as well as Sussex County.
