January 7, 2004

Campus to host daylong
Health and Human Services Institute

Health, social 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.

Navigating the Future 2004 logo

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 or (916) 278-4433. For media assistance, contact CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
