The Healthy Start TA & Support Center (TASC) is excited to partner with the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) to host a monthly, virtual Healthy Start Workshop Series: Tools for Community Transformation. The goal of this interactive series is to improve Healthy Start (HS) programs’ overall performance, including increasing their Community Action Networks’ (CAN) capacity around leadership, partnership development, community engagement, and sustainability. The workshop series will consist of six 45-minute monthly workshops, where NACCHO staff will share a specific tool/resource and discuss how HS grantees can utilize it within their CANs. Participants are encouraged to try these tools and can receive technical assistance from NACCHO during virtual office hours, also offered regularly, to further aid their capacity-building and sustainability efforts tied to each workshop’s topic.
Workshop #4 will take place on Thursday, December 7 from 2-2:45 p.m. ET. This workshop will introduce participants to the Community Health Improvement Matrix, a tool developed by NACCHO to evaluate and develop strategies for a community health improvement plan. The CHIM helps communities identify strategies that address social determinants of health and systemic drivers of inequity.
