We’re excited that key components from Interact for Health’s Thriving Communities initiative are featured in the December 2018 edition of The Foundation Review, a peer-reviewed journal of philanthropy.
In “Thriving Communities: A Model for Community-Engaged Grantmaking,” Interact associates Mary Francis, Colleen Desmond, Jeffrey Williams, Jennifer Chubinski, former Interact associate Ashlee Young and consultant Jennifer Zimmerman describe three tools that were created to help communities embed health promotion and advocacy work.
“The tools equip the grassroots community with the means to focus on solutions by shaping healthy policies, norms and practices that improve health at the neighborhood level,” Francis said. “We hope that other funders can use the tools to reach their community goals.”
One reviewer called the article “an interesting and important paper on achieving community health. The community development process is a significant advance, and the results are impressive.”
Interact for Health regularly conducts research and collects data in order to monitor and evaluate our region’s health status and to measure public opinions about health policy.
