Join Lyla Hernandez as she discusses the
Institute of Medicine’s framework for assessing
the value of community-based prevention
To improve our nation’s health, greater emphasis must be placed on efforts to keep
people healthy as opposed to treating them once they become ill. Prevention, which
refers to helping people avoid getting sick or identifying diseases early so, is one of the
best ways to help Americans live longer and healthier lives. Determining the value of
community based prevention has proven difficult as preventing morbidity and mortality
requires immediate investments with benefits that might not be realized for many
years. To address this issue, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) developed a framework for
assessing the value of community-based prevention policies and wellness strategies.
Come learn about the major findings and recommendations from IOM and how to apply
this framework to your community-based prevention efforts.
