To further the connection between the health and environmental sectors, and to advance important cross-sector work being done in these areas, The Intertwine Alliance continues its series of biannual health & nature forums on Wednesday, Nov. 1, at Taborspace in SE Portland. Join us for the Fall 2017 event to learn more about effectively communicating the impact of nature on health.
After some light breakfast and networking, we will start the day with an interactive presentation by Lauriel Amoroso, previous Intertwine Alliance intern and current staff member. Lauriel will present on her work compiling research and extracting achievable health outcomes related to nature access. This will be followed by a series of short presentations from Emily York of the Oregon Health Authority, Jen Coleman of the Oregon Environmental Council, Mo Sherifdeen of Travel Oregon and Melissa Fisher of Kaiser Permanente, who will be sharing how they communicate the health-and-nature connection to advance policy changes.
We will wrap up the day with a workshop on how to create your own values-based messaging by Rex Burkholder, former Metro councilor and author of "The Activist's Toolkit."
Light breakfast will be served. Registration and networking opens at 8:45 a.m.
A big thank you to event sponsors the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Metro, and Friends of Trees.
