How CBOs and Healthcare Organizations Can Create Mutually Beneficial Partnerships for Equity

HealthBegins February 23 Webinar (Twitter)


Partnership with healthcare organizations can help community-based organizations (CBOs) achieve financial sustainability—and help healthcare partners deliver ground-level services to address social needs and advance equity. But many CBOs and healthcare partners struggle with creating and maintaining those relationships. HealthBegins and the National Association of Community Health Workers (NACHW) invite you to learn more about the challenges and benefits of these partnerships, along with strategies for making them sustainable and effective.


This webinar walk us through The One-Stop Shop For Healthcare & Community Partnerships, a resource library for these clinical-community partnerships, curated by HealthBegins and supported by the Commonwealth Fund and the Nonprofit Finance Fund. Watch to discover the tools and resources available and identify opportunities to put them into action.
