  • At the Healthy Homes and Communities Regional Gatherings this spring, the Alliance organizing partners heard many ideas about how an alliance could support both local and state­wide work on behalf of healthy homes and communities. These include suggestions for policy development and advocacy, public education, program development, and support for cross sector collaborations. The afternoon sessions will utilize instant voting technology to pursue these ideas further. The outcomes of the afternoon will become the basis for funding proposals to help implement the Alliance. The first session will highlight the results from the Gatherings and begin to prioritize possible Alliance activities. Slides (for both afternoon sessions)
2:45 to 4 p.m.Alliance Session II: Organizing the Alliance for Healthy Homes and Communities
  • After the break we will continue defining priority activities, get responses to ideas for how the Alliance should operate and be governed, and gauge the willingness of the attendees to participate in the development and future activities of the Alliance for Healthy Homes and Communities. Slides (for both afternoon sessions)
