Date:7/12/2013

.”

“This successful approach showcases the critical importance of aligning efforts between public-private organizations to implement upstream changes to impact public health," said Stacia Clinton, RD. LDN., Healthy Food in Health Care Program Coordinator, Health Care Without Harm. Due to its massive buying power, and its mission-driven interest in health, the health care sector can assist in reconfiguring the food system to prioritize illness prevention through shifts in product purchasing and promoting healthy consumption trends. Hospitals and health care systems can serve as leaders by setting a standard for other institutions to follow and by supporting necessary public policy interventions as they relate to food and beverages.”

Each innovative project receiving the award was peer-reviewed (by other local health department professionals) and selected from a group of 101 applications. Since 2003, NACCHO’s Model Practice Awards program has honored initiatives—including programs, resources, and tools—that demonstrate how local health departments and their community partners can effectively collaborate to address local public health concerns. The Boston Hospital Learning Network is now part of an online, searchable database of successful public health practices in areas ranging from immunization and maternal and child health to infectious diseases and emergency preparedness. This award puts Health Care Without Harm and the Boston Public Health Commission into special company—a select group of public health organizations that exemplify a forward thinking, proactive attitude toward protecting and promoting the health of communities across the nation.

Heath Care without Harm (HCWH) is an international coalition of more than 500 organizations in 53 countries, working to transform the health care sector, without compromising patient safety or care, so that it is ecologically sustainable and no longer a source of harm to public health
