Feedback form is now closed.
Starting in 2015, HealthEast (now Fairview Health Services) convened nearly two dozen organizations to address the root causes of poor health at the neighborhood level.  Community partners identified local health and well-being needs and narrowed the group’s focus to two high-priority areas.  : 1) Access to Healthy Food and 2) Mental Health and Stress Resilience.

The 18-month pilot projects born of this process (East Side Table and the East Side Mental Health & Stress Resilience Partnership) embrace East Side communities’ unique cultural traditions and wisdom, build on existing strengths and resources, and acknowledge the challenges that many low-income East Side residents face every day.

This presentation will highlight those initiative and provide tools to attendees to:
1. Advocate for a collaborative model within their own organizations and communities
2. Shift their understanding of collaboration to one of “for” the community to “with” the community
3. Discuss the necessity of building a collaboration that grows and shares power to address the root causes of health
