Break-Out Session #4: Healthy Homes: Partnering with Healthcare Providers to Improve Outcomes
Housing and health care are more closely related than ever before. To address this issue head-on, Ballad Health, Appalachia Service Project, and East Tennessee State University's College of Public Health created a regional partnership to research and provide a more holistic and effective approach to healthcare by meeting the housing needs of families in northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia. Presenters will be Nicole Intagliata, Director of Programs at ASP, and Megan Quinn, Associate Professor at East Tennessee State University. (Megan is replacing Paula Masters from Ballad Health who was originally scheduled to speak.) The session will conclude with a short presentation by Nick Oliver of Hinton Rural Life Center, winner of the Best Practices Award for Home Repair Practices. He'll share about their Healthy Homes Checklist, work with their local Red Cross chapter to check for proper smoke detector installation, and partnership with health care providers to help improve conditions at homes that are linked to health concerns.

Break-Out Session #7: Compassion Fatigue
A presentation by Allyson Petry, Executive Director of Nazareth Farm. Working in a caring profession isn't easy work, and many of us are not equipped to take in all the stories, trauma, pressures, and needs of our clients and staff. Learning signs of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma in oneself can allow individuals to keep working and caring in healthy ways. Without this knowledge and self-insight, many individuals experience burnout, anger, or unhealthy relationships. This session will introduce these topics and allow for space to discuss ways to handle them. Let other people's stories give you life, not stress. Learn how to combat compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.
