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?
Our November 20th Network Commons sought to answer these questions with the help of experts from the Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative, the Alliance for Health Equity, and the Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Health Improvement.
The Network’s Executive Director, Dr. Douglas Jutte, moderated a rich discussion with three experts:
- Melissa Jones, MPA, Executive Director, Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative
- Jessica Lynch, MCP, MPH, Program Director, Alliance for Health Equity
- Kathryn Lawler, Executive Director, Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Health Improvement
