NWCPHP and the Public Health Institute (PHI) are collaborating on a “learning laboratory” to support local health departments transitioning from clinical services to more population-based strategies that address the social determinants of health.

The project’s main activities include developing case studies of health departments that have successfully transitioned away from offering varying levels of clinical services; recruiting teams of public health leaders and their community partners to tackle these issues; and creating toolkits and additional resources to help others successfully navigate these changes.

The two-year project is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Project period: December 2017 to December 2019
