Making Partnerships Work for Your Community
Webinar Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2020 from 1-2pm EDT
Cross-sector collaboration is a term used to describe a process where various community organizations come together to collectively focus their expertise and resources on a complex issue of importance to a community they serve. Improving the health of your community requires that the public health department, healthcare institutions, and other community stakeholders providing health and health-related services break out of their comfort zones and work collaboratively.
What does it take to build a successful cross-sector collaborative?
Discussion topics include:
- Why many organizations are partnering now to achieve shared objectives
- Tools you can use to build and sustain a cross-sector collaboration
- Examples of cross-sector collaborations and their impact on the community
- Resources to help you address common community health challenges
Our speakers will also answer your questions during the program. Submit a question in advance to email@example.com.
