Join us for our Network Commons: “Larger Than Cities and Towns: Partnering for Health at a Regional Level” at 10am PT/ 1pm ET on 11/20

The solutions to improve the health of communities often transcend the borders of cities or towns.

The solutions to improve the health of communities often transcend the borders of cities or towns. What do successful cross-sector approaches to health and equity improvement look like when they span different geographical regions?

Join us on November 20th for a stimulating #NetworkCommons conversation as we meet three organizations from across the country that are driving innovative regional approaches to improve health outcomes, enhance opportunity, and advance equity. Hear about the economic, cultural and policy forces shaping these dynamic multi-sector partnerships.

Our interactive conversation and audience question and answers will explore the strategies they’ve developed for engaging diverse stakeholders and the challenges and the successes and lessons they are learning along the way.


From Atlanta, Chicago and the Bay area, these speakers represent the cutting edge of innovation when thinking about regional approaches to advancing health and equity.
