TOPIC: “Six Disruptive Demographics that will Change America for Ever.

Dr. Johnson will present on the implications for health care as a result of the changing demographics in the U.S. and Florida.

Six disruptive demographic trends of the new millennium—the South rises again, the browning of America, marrying out is “in,” the silver tsunami is about to hit, the end of men?, and cooling water from grandma’s well…and grandpa’s too!—are dramatically transforming all of this nation’s social, economic, and political institutions. Data from two decennial censuses (2000 and 2010) and the American Community Survey (2010-2017) are used to describe these trends and assess the specific implications and challenges they pose for the health of our nation.

SMALL TALK #1-C

Creating Effective Program Metrics and Evaluations: Three Approaches

The objective of this session is to promote ongoing self-evaluation practices for projects and programs of any size and mission. Three approaches will be recommended and explained: (1) the classic logic model, (2) Results-Based Accountability (Mark Friedman), and (3) dash boarding to track and trend performance and outcomes over time against established benchmarks.

SMALL TALK #2-C
Exploring Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): Public Health Impact and Solutions

“Exposure to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is the greatest unaddressed public health threat facing our nation today.” Robert Block, MD, former president of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Sustained toxic stress early in life, without buffering relationships, can significantly alter the brain's architecture, gene expression, and health throughout the lifespan. The immediate and long-term effects of unaddressed ACEs can manifest in everything from preschool expulsion to school violence, addiction, depression, chronic disease, unemployment, and early death.

To break the Intergenerational cycle of trauma and ACEs, a cross-sector Public Health prevention approach must be used. This session will interactively explain ACEs, their impact on the brain, how they alter gene expression and examine how a public health approach can impact population level change and long-term health outcomes.

Closing Speaker and Luncheon

 The Fallacy of Impossible

Since the launch of the EyeWriter and Not Impossible Foundation, Mick has passionately studied the concept of “Impossible.” All the modern conveniences we see around us were once considered “impossible” by people who didn’t know any better. Synthetic fabrics, cell phones and digital watches (not to mention cars and computers) were all figments of the imagination until inspiration met execution and the impossible became a reality. In this talk, Mick dives deeper into “Impossible,” the underlying psychological effects it has on an organization, and how to overcome “Impossible” so true innovation can take place.
