Invest Health Roseville Breakfast - Strengthening Partnerships

On March 1, 2024, HEC convened the 5th Invest Health Breakfast, welcoming over 100 participants to receive an update of Invest Health Roseville’s journey, milestones and accomplishments to improve community health. The focus of this year’s breakfast program was economic development and workforce data that can inform strategies, programs and evaluation. Samantha Breslin, Program Supervisor from NYU City Health Dashboard presented key data metrics for workforce, health and quality of life displaying citywide and neighborhood level data and their disparities. This was followed by an economic development and workforce development panel presentation of local leaders further discussing workforce shortages and opportunities, partnerships existing and needed, initiatives underway and planned and the connection between health outcomes and workforce development efforts in the region.

Adrian Guerrero, Vice President, Union Pacific facilitated the panel of local experts including Melissa Anguiano, Economic Development Director, City of Roseville; Amy Schulz, Dean of Career, Continuing & Technical Education, Sierra College; and Gloria Sterns, Economic Development Director, Placer County. Panelists agreed on the importance of developing comprehensive workforce development strategies, the opportunity for expanded partnerships, discussed the approaches they have implemented and upcoming initiatives in the pipeline underway by their respective organizations.
