Creating Healthy Communities

Creating Healthy Communities

By Tom Gibbon
Manager, Swedish Community Specialty Clinic

On Saturday, March 10th, Sallie Neillie and I will be presenting a workshop at Guiding Lights. Here is a synopsis:

Creating Healthy Communities: a Story of Corporate Citizenship

This workshop is a great primer for anyone interested in how good corporate citizenship contributes to the vibrancy of communities. In response to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Swedish Medical Center developed a Community Needs Assessment that became the cornerstone of a clinic providing specialty care for the uninsured in King County. Through partnerships with non-profits and foundations, over 300 Physicians and Dentists are now providing no-cost care for the underserved at this clinic. In this workshop, you will learn how to develop your own Community Needs Assessment, and discuss how to create a vibrant, evolving network of partner organizations to meet a need in your community.
