Communities of Practice Meetings

July 10, 2018


The goal of the CHLP Communities of Practice (CoP) is to create a safe and inviting forum for different teams, cohorts, sectors, and interests to collaborate. Meetings revolve around select areas of interest that are expressed by our community and participants share experiences, stories, tools, and ways of addressing recurring challenges. CoP meetings provide opportunities to interact with interesting people from a variety of disciplines who are eager to share and learn from one another. Past topics have included collective impact, health equity, preparedness / community resilience, built environment, community engagement, and health literacy.



Please click on the 2018 CoP meeting titles below to register. Our first two meetings--on health equity and community engagement--have passed. Access to recordings and resources are available in the archive section below. Our third meeting--on preparedness--has been scheduled for June. Other upcoming meeting dates and times will be posted here on the CoP page as they are scheduled.
