Playing in the Same Sandbox:
Hospitals and CHBs Working Together on Community Health Assessment
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.
Susan Congrave, Koochiching County Public Health
Mary Hildebrandt, Nicollet County Public Health
Cindy Pederson, Wadena County Public Health
