MEMBERS ONLY! Professional Wellness in Crazy Times

American Public Health Association
800 I Street, NW
First Floor Conference Room

In the public health and health care world, the conversation about professional wellness and burnout often focuses on the (very real) issues affecting clinical providers. But policy, advocacy, and government relations work carries its own unique stresses, especially in such a fast-moving and unpredictable political climate. 

John Sawyer, formerly Director of Federal Affairs at the National Association of Community health Centers now runs Open Way Coaching, a life and leadership coaching practice where he works with mission-driven professionals around wellness, balance, and mindful career development. 

In an interactive presentation and discussion, John will cover: 

  • The unique obstacles facing policy and advocacy professionals as they try to work smarter and healthier in today's environment;

  • Practical strategies for approaching our work in a more fulfilling and joyful way; and

  • The basics of professional coaching--what it means, how it works, and the value it can deliver.

This will be an informative and thought-provoking session, useful for the novice and the veteran alike.

MEMBERS ONLY! Research for Dummies: Translating Scientific Findings for Policy Audiences

800 I Street NW, Main Conference Room

Featuring: Adrianna McIntyre, MPP, MPH (@onceuponA)
Managing Editor, The Incidental Economist and PhD Student, Harvard University (Formerly David A. Winston Health Policy Fellow, Office of Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi)

Advocates are often called upon to translate scientific findings to policymakers, staff, and reporters. But what if you don't know what a "p value" is? Or what the strengths and limitations of a double blind trail are? How do you know if the findings are generalizable? Or what the difference between correlation and causation is? What you if "dumb it down" TOO much, to the point of not being accurate? 

Master translator Adrianna McIntyre will facilitate this workshop to help you understand what you need to know about research, and how to talk about it.

This is a members-only event. It's ideal for novice and seasoned GR and communications professionals, alike. More than one person per organization welcome.

The Gold Room, 2168 Rayburn House Office Building
Ice cream will be served beginning at 1:45 p.m.

Sponsored by: The Population Association of America

The United States is in the midst of a major demographic shift. In a dozen years the last of the Baby Boomers—which have dominated American society for decades—will reach retirement age; meanwhile the oldest of the so-called Millennials, today’s young adults, will have arrived at middle age. What does the rise of the Millennial generation mean for America?  How will growing ethnic and racial diversity shape American society? What trends are implicated in this momentum shift—namely, how do Millennials’ job prospects, educational achievements, and marital trends compare to previous generations? Join us for a fascinating discussion of the Millennial generation, featuring presentations by two leading researchers in population trends:

  • William Frey, Ph.D., Brookings Institution, author, Diversity Explosion
  • Julia Dowling, Ph.D., University of Illinois
  • Moderator:  Angela Manso, NALEO:  National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials
