Olympic Community of Health presents the Coffee Break Video Series, addressing local health issues through community conversations and shared cups of coffee.
The purpose of this video series is to create accessible, digital resources that highlight partner and community voices on important health topics. These videos are also intended as a way for staff in partner organizations to engage with the work of OCH and potentially serve as a potential professional development opportunity for health-serving staff across the region.
Ultimately, we hope these videos are a source of inspiration and curiosity, leading to deeper conversations and energy around collaborative work that helps foster a region of healthy people, thriving communities.
This video series brings bite sized conversations (in 15 minutes or less) discussing health challenges directly to your screen. We invite you to grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us as we dive into the first topic: determinants of health.
Ideas to engage with this video:
1. Have your team watch the short video (independently or host a viewing party) and come together to discuss. These videos are open for public use. Some suggested discussion questions are:
What resonates with your work?
How are you currently addressing determinants of health?
Where are there opportunities for partnership and/or a collaborative approach to address determinants of health in your work?
What is a determinant of health that you and your team would like to better address?
What skills and strengths do you have to offer that neighboring partners may benefit from?
What skills and strengths is your team or approach currently lacking? Are there resources or connections you can make to creatively fill those gaps?
2. Host an OCH staff member to share the video and facilitate a group discussion with your team.
3. Connect with OCH (email@example.com) to share how your team are creatively addressing determinants of health. We would love to share your work with the region.
Help share the video! OCH encourages partners to use this video in whatever way is helpful to their staff and community. Some ideas to share this video:
Post the video on your website
Share it on social media

OCH would like to give a shout out to the local videographer, Whaleheart Productions, who brought this project to life.
