Communities of Practice Meetings

February 13, 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.



Topics for 2018 CoP meeting have been selected and our first two meetings--discussing health equity and community engagement--have been scheduled. Please click on meeting titles to register. See the list below for dates, times and topics. Future meeting dates and times will be posted here on the CoP page. Access to recordings and resources for all past meetings is available in the archive section below. For more information, see the CoP invitation!
