Description

In this webinar we’ll interview David Weed, director of Greater Fall River Partners for a Healthier Community, to learn about how they have generated community support for health-focused initiatives for many years. We know that achieving solid health outcomes takes everyone working together--Fall River has been successful in bringing together partners from all walks of life to build multi-sector collaboration and leadership. We will ask David about what it takes to engage community leaders in policy changes to improve health (such as a Complete Streets initiative) and the challenges inherent in working with organizations and businesses with differing agendas. Along the way we will explore some of the accomplishments that led Fall River to become an inaugural winner of the RWJF Culture of Health prize in 2013.
