Bringing Public Health and Primary Care Together: The Practical Playbook National Meeting was held in May 2016. The meeting was a milestone event towards advancing robust collaborations that improve population health.

One highlight of the meeting was interviewing community collaborations funded by The BUILD Health Challenge. The BUILD Health Challenge is a national awards program designed to support community collaborations that are working to give everyone a fair chance to be healthy.

Overview

We know that every young child and family in East Denver has the potential to thrive, but not every family has the same starting place. East5ide Unified is committed to establishing a community-driven, community-led effort to develop an East5ide Unified Action Plan designed to level the playing field for young children before they start school. We are focused on children in five neighborhoods in East Denver: Cole, Clayton, Five Points, Whittier and Skyland.
