Prevention Institute Holding a Training on “Building Collaboration for Primary Prevention.” Register Today!

PreventionInstituteOn Wednesday, January 27, Prevention Institute is holding a training in Los Angeles focused on building collaboration. Registration info and details are available here.

Event Description:

Across California, a transformation is underway: more and more, voices for health equity are shaping the landscape of our communities. With major policies, initiatives, and investments underway in the state, there are tremendous opportunities in Southern California to shape a healthier and more equitable region. Yet, significant challenges remain, as certain communities face competing priorities, limited resources, and pressing needs.

Building a healthy future for all Angelenos requires working in collaboration. No one organization, agency, or sector can do it alone. But collaboration is not always easy. Who should be “at the table”? How do you move beyond information sharing to developing joint strategies and achieving shared outcomes? How do you sustain collective impact approaches over time?

We encourage you to extend this invite to your network to join a group of partners, advocates and practitioners on Wednesday, January 27th to discuss these challenges and opportunities at Prevention Institute’s Building Collaboration for Primary Prevention training, where we will share tools and frameworks to support collective impact. Supported by The California Endowment’s Health ExChange Academy, this no-cost training will focus on specific tools and strategies you can use to build effective, collaborative approaches to improve community health, safety, and equity. Registration is filling up very quickly so please RSVP today.
