Our Mathematica experts are excited to join you at the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA) National Human Services Summit 2023, diving into the latest on policies and programs relating to health and human services. On this web page, you can explore a collection of evidence and insights that Mathematica offers related to topics covered at this year’s summit—including climate change, the Family First Prevention Services Act, tackling rural health disparities, supporting the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program and child welfare, incorporating equity into Early Childhood programs, and more.
During the summit, our team will co-facilitate a workshop focused on helping human services agencies build more resilient and equitable communities. (Please note that this session is by invitation.) If you are not participating in the workshop but are interested in exploring the topic further, be sure to stop by our table in the exhibit hall. As one of this year’s event sponsors, we welcome the opportunity to speak with you to learn about your interests and to share more about Mathematica’s growing partnership with APHSA!
Reimagining Human Services in Light of Environmental and Climate Injustice: How Do We Build More Resilient and Equitable Communities for the Future?
When: Tuesday, May 23, 2023, 2:00 − 5:50 p.m. ET
- Matt Stagner, Vice President, Mathematica
- Alex Bauer, Advisory Services Analyst, Mathematica
- Chloe Green, Policy Associate, Food and Nutrition Services, American Public Human Services Association
Environmental and climate injustice impact the health and well-being of people in communities across the country, compelling human services agencies to address these issues. In the first part of this workshop, we will work together to connect the dots between human services and environmental and climate injustice and explore related work currently led by APHSA and the federal government. We will then examine impacts of and potential solutions for these injustices in the human services space. To close out the workshop, we will roll up our sleeves to develop concrete, individualized plans that state and local leaders in attendance can put into action within their own programs to begin addressing environmental and climate injustice.
