A Fresh Look at Work-Life Balance for the Health Care Workforce
Presented by Glenna Crooks, Monday, Sept 17 – 2- 3 pm
In her latest innovation, as told in The NetworkSage: Realize Your Network Superpower, Glenna Crooks, Ph.D. describes a new way to help lessen the overwhelm of modern life, address work-life balance, performance, productivity and family caregiving by understanding and better managing eight networks that support working adults. Initially catalyzed by a comment made by Robert Downey, Jr. in an interview, it set her off on what would become a decade of deep ethnographic research into the lives of people ages 7-87. In this workshop, she’ll describe the essential components of a method she calls ACTSage and provide materials participants can use in their lives inside and outside of work.Heroes to Healthcare
Making Measurement Actionable: Closing the Skills Gap through Labor Linked Program Planning,
Presented by: Todd Oldham, Monroe Community College, (NY), Monday, Sept. 17 -3:15-4:15
As the primary producer of the technical workforce, community colleges are expected to graduate more workers for in-demand occupations that are increasingly in shorter supply within the labor market. The challenge faced by community colleges is in obtaining a regional focus in measuring middle-skills gaps in the local economy and achieving action through an efficient and organized response with a labor linked regional program plan. In this session, Monroe Community College will share an innovative labor linked program template that measures skill gaps across a region and actions that measurement with a cohort-based instructional model that has led to higher completion rates and direct employment of students within occupations showing deficits. Presenters will highlight how to apply a labor market template to organize a regional education collaborative and how they adapted existing curriculum to achieve measurable impact. Learning Outcomes: How select labor market data and coordinated marketing efforts can be leveraged into a powerful tool to address challenges of developing an educational pipeline leading to employment in technical occupations for a regional economy.

Keynote: Keynote: Health, Wealth and Economic Development
Glenna Crooks: Tuesday, September 18, 8:00 – 8:45 am
Ever since a landmark British Civil Servant study, it has been known that the wealthier a person is, the healthier they will be. What is less well-known, but which has been far better documented, is that the healthier a person is, the wealthier they will become. In fact, except for primary school education, health is a better predictor of wealth than is education. Glenna Crooks, Ph.D. will discuss this data and how the health impact on wealth applies to individuals, families, companies, geographic regions, and nations.
