2021 ECONOMIC MOBILITY AND WELL-BEING CONFERENCE
AN APHSA HYBRID EXPERIENCE
Shaping Solutions through Research, Policy, and Practice
APHSA is continuing to monitor and assess the potential impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on our members’ work as well as our events and events-related travel. We continue to move ahead as planned. With everyone’s health and well-being as top priority, we will continue to provide updates as needed.
As we look to the future, we focus on not only recovery but on revitalization for human services. The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated just how interconnected the foundational building blocks to well-being are, as are the many important systems that come together to form the array of health and human services programs. We join to focus on regaining what was lost, forging new beginnings, and surpassing the past to achieve economic mobility while paving the road ahead to a more equitable, balanced, and thriving future for everyone.
The 2021 Economic Mobility and Well-Being Conference will provide a hybrid experience of in-person and virtual learning to move us to the next level of learning and collaboration In partnership with the National Association of Welfare Research Statistics (NAWRS) and three APHSA affinity groups including the American Association of SNAP Directors (AASD), the National Association for Program Information and Performance Measurement (NAPIPM), and the National Association of State TANF Administrators (NASTA), this conference brings together those committed to providing and improving human services programs.
Content is being designed to assist health and human service leaders, policy makers, and researchers shape the future of human services programs through collaboration, integration, and modernization, guidance on how best to monitor quality control and performance management. By bringing policy, practice, research, and a wide array of programs together, we aim to advance our collective goal of achieving economic mobility and well-being for all. We strive to balance social mobility, equity, and inclusion for people that disproportionately rely on human services programs such as communities of color, communities of various abilities, and people within the LGBTQ+ spectrum, as well as address the social determinants of health in sessions that educate, enlighten, and connect our members to best work with their communities. When our work is centered on people and public service, building common ground, and partnering across sectors, there is no limit to what we can achieve together.
