American Public Health Association 2016 Annual Meeting & Expo

CRI team members will offered eight presentations about CRI partnerships overall and the CRI Life Enhancement Program (CRI LEP) in particular at the American Public Health Association 2016 Annual Meeting & Expo in Denver, CO. Topics included how the CRI LEP uses integrative health and health literacy to prevent and reduce chronic disease; how the CRI LEP advances the health of older adults; and ways that the CRI LEP connects health, spirituality, and sense of purpose to improve health and well-being. We also presented data about how the CRI LEP improves participants’ mental health. Two other presentations focused on how CRI conducts formative research and uses the findings to tailor the CRI LEP to each community and how CRI trains health professionals to deliver the CRI LEP. We also presented about the use of disruptive health technologies, such as fitness wearables and apps, in the CRI LEP. Finally, we presented the CRI PRIMES model, which CRI created and uses to develop and fund sustainable, science-based partnerships that accomplish public good.
