Campus to host daylong
Health and Human Services Institute
service and workforce development issues facing the Capital Region in the next
decade will be the focus of the third annual Health and Human Services Institute
at California State University, Sacramento from
7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 15 in the University Union.
Presented by the Community Services Planning Council, “Navigating the
Future 2004” is a one-day series of diverse presentations and workshops
by experts from a variety of fields including healthcare, education and finance.
Topics include obesity, community youth programs and the state budget. The event
is co-sponsored by CSUS and The California Endowment.
Highlighting the day will be talks by Manuel Pastor, director of the Center
for Justice, Tolerance and Community at UC Santa Cruz, on “Navigating
the New Economy” and Greg Critser, author of Fat Land: How Americans Became
the Fattest People in the World. Other participants include Virginia Hamilton,
California Workforce Association; Dr. Amerish Bera, Sacramento County Primary
Health Services and Sen. Deborah Ortiz.
The program is designed to present issues affecting health and human services
in the region from several different perspectives, and to help participants
successfully address upcoming challenges. “As our region grows, we are
more affected by decisions and actions made outside our local communities,”
says Nancy Findeisen, president of the Community Services Planning Council.
“These decisions about our future are being made today in political forums
and boardrooms across the region, but too often the social impacts of these
decisions are not fully understood or considered.”
Registration is $105. To register or for more information, call 1-800-858-7743
