Join us for the June 12th Network Commons: “How to Get into the Partnership Game: A Healthcare Playbook for Community Developers” at 10am PT/ 1pm ET

Community development experts discuss how to partner with healthcare to create healthy communities.

Everyone seems to be talking about the value of cross-sector partnerships to improve health and well-being, but how can Community Development Corporations (CDCs), Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), and affordable housing developers leverage their assets and expertise for effective partnerships with hospitals and healthcare systems? Where do you start?

Join us on June 12th for a special preview of our forthcoming resource, “Healthcare Playbook for Community Developers” and learn how three cross-sector leaders are building impactful partnerships across the community development and healthcare sectors.
