Since Minnesota CHBs and private, non-profit hospitals must complete community health assessments, both have identified the value of working together. Each gains much by collaborating on collecting data, identifying priorities, and developing a shared vision for the community's health. In this session, three health departments will share their successes and lessons learned in partnering with hospitals.
