The Heartbeat of Community-Centric Health Systems

Ackeem Evans CIVA (Civic Intelligent Virtual Assistant)

Ackeem Evans from CIVA proposes to lead and facilitate a session that challenges conventional health system paradigms. This Delegate-Led Meet Up embarks on a critical exploration of the ‘why’ behind community engagement in health research, questioning traditional dissemination methods and advocating for a shift towards a community-empowered model.

In this session, Ackeem will share insights from the innovative partnership between CIVA and Maine Health Institute of Research (MHIR), illustrating how this collaboration serves as a beacon for health system transformation. By marrying the foundational ‘why’ with the innovative ‘how’, the session aims to dissect and rebuild the mechanisms of health communication and engagement. Participants will delve into case studies and data-driven results showcasing how community voices have been elevated to drive meaningful change in health policies and practices.

The narrative extends beyond information sharing; it is a quest to uncover the essence of impactful health communication. The session will highlight how a shift towards genuine curiosity, empathy, and community focus can lead to more effective, inclusive, and transformative health outcomes. Attendees will explore how leveraging community insights and voices can redefine public health landscapes, ensuring that research not only informs but also resonates with and activates the broader community.
