In this session, Yale’s Brita Roy will unveil a new, literature based model called “Collective well-being” which can serve as a holistic measure of the overall “health” of a community. Patty Purpur de Vries will review Stanford’s “Well-being Framework” and we will compare these models and discuss how each offers actionable examples and opportunities for demonstrating how community characteristics effect well-being and how worksite wellness can play a role in improving community health. “Collective well-being” is a group-level construct measured across five domains: vitality, opportunity, connectedness, contribution, and inspiration. Related to these domains, professional development and resiliency building examples from Stanford will be featured. As always, we will poll our webinar audience to learn about current applications from the field that are advancing these concepts.

Dr. Roy is also interested in the development of multi-disciplinary community-healthcare collaborations to support population health and well-being. Finally, Dr. Roy enjoys caring for patients and teaching medical students and residents as an academic hospitalist. Dr. Roy received a Bachelors in Engineering from Vanderbilt University, followed by a Masters in Engineering from Wayne State University.
