The web forum will share a framework for creating healthy communities in California, which is delineated in the newly released Good Health Counts: A 21st Century Approach to Health and Community for California. The report broadens the understanding of which elements need to be in place for a community to achieve better health outcomes. Different communities inevitably have different goals and needs; this framework can be adapted to develop a plan to address the diversity of issues within each community.
The web forum discussion will serve as a launching pad for advocates and practitioners to explore how nutrition and physical activity efforts fit into a broader community health framework and what sectors and disciplines need to be engaged to achieve the vision of a healthy California. Participants are encouraged to engage in a dialogue about this framework and the needs and concerns of their sectors, disciplines, and/or communities, identify what current tools and approaches resonate with them, and what additional resources needed to support current efforts in improving health.
In this discussion, we will address America's status as a sexually unhealthy nation and the challenges we face in advocating for real change. The presentation will feature an in-depth discussion of Evolve, an advertising and public information campaign from the makers of Trojan® brand condoms. The campaign is designed to get men and women thinking about worthiness, self-care, and trust: Does my partner care enough about me, or do I care enough about myself, to use a condom? The market research that led to the development of the Evolve campaign will be shared--along with key learnings with respect to framing sexual health communications that advocates may wish to incorporate into their work.
Presenters include Kathy Bonk, Executive Director of the Communications Consortium Media Center, Debra Hauser, Executive Vice President of Advocates For Youth, and Jim Daniels, Vice President of Marketing for Church & Dwight, the makers of Trojan® brand condoms. They will take us step by step through the implementation of the Evolve campaign and will look specifically at one example of partnering with the private sector to reframe people's perceptions about carrying and using condoms.

The 8-Step Protocol Development Cycle is a long-term strategy for improving response to sexual assault victim/survivors at the local level. This approach is designed for use by multidisciplinary teams that are seeking ways to coordinate and continuously improve their response to sexual assault. Ten teams in Minnesota have been using the Cycle for anywhere from one to eleven years on their teams. This session will provide an overview of each of the 8-steps of the Cycle, compare it to other system change efforts, and discuss how this approach might enhance your team’s current efforts and how it fits into our National Technical Assistance Project site selection process.
