Come chat once a month with colleagues who are managing, leading, or supporting coalitions in their community. We will explore successes, challenges, ideas, and solutions for building effective coalitions that create and sustain lasting change. The Managing Effective Coalitions Community of Practice will be facilitated, but there will not be any formal presentation and the conversation will be driven by the participants. Anyone working with a coalition tackling issues related to public health, behavioral health, or environmental health located in the states of CO, MT, ND, SD, UT, or WY is invited to participate. You do not need to attend every month.
