STATE HEALTH IMPROVEMENT MODEL (SIM) Health Enhancement Community Initiative

What would health look like in Connecticut’s towns and cities if leaders from health care, community organizations, government, schools, social services, and more worked together to prevent people from experiencing poor health and not just wait until people get sick to provide care? How could we help strengthen our communities if we collaborated across sectors and jointly strategized to improve community health and reduce health inequities across the state? What if we stepped out of our silos and created a collective vision to improve the health and well-being of Connecticut’s residents and then aligned our priorities and efforts to make that vision a reality?

Imagine what we could do together.

During the roundtable we will discuss:

  • How can we work together on a shared vision and strategy?
  • How could the Health Enhancement Community Initiative work best in communities across the state?
  • What innovative sustainability strategies could support community efforts long term?

We invite you to join us for a roundtable discussion on cross-sector collaboration and to learn about an opportunity to create community-driven solutions to poor health, health inequity, and the growing health care costs in Connecticut.
