Co-Creating Well-Being for Children and Families

Jeff Ciminesi, our Program Development 
Coordinator, attended a one-day educational session this week of the Co-Creating Well-Being initiative through the Health Foundation for Western & Central New York. This three-phased, multi-year initiative focuses on “addressing trauma, toxic stress, adverse childhood experiences and its impact on children and families within the areas of: childbearing, overall health and well-being, early childhood development and school-readiness.” Wednesday’s workshop in Ellicottville discussed signs of trauma and toxic stress, adverse childhood experiences and how trauma-informed care can bring healing results. The second session of Phase 1 will be on applying human-centered design principles to meet community need. We look forward to participating in subsequent phases to support future Child Health and Safety Team initiatives. I would like to thank the Health Foundation of Western & Central New York for including Southern Tier Health Care System in this training opportunity.
Community Health Improvement Leadership Academy
On Tuesday I attended a one-day intensive training by Community Health Improvement Leadership Academy (CHILA) on community-improvement skills. This included information on applied measurement techniques, engaging people with live experience and building collaborative teams. These skills are intended to help community-based organizations such as STHCS with the ever-increasing challenge from foundations and other funders for setting process and outcome measures for their programming to prove actual impact on communities they serve. We look forward to working collaboratively with other community-based organizations and putting the skills to practice.
