Developing Network Leadership Capacity for County Health Rankings and Roadmaps

January 2016 – Ongoing // Nationwide Project

CHR&R is working to improve health outcomes for all and to close the health inequity gap nationwide.

This work is rooted in a deep belief in health equity, the idea that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, income, location, or any other factor. 

Our team at Visible Network Labs is helping CHR&R develop a network strategy and leadership capacity, so they can leverage their network partnerships more effectively and accomplish their shared goals. We started with an on-the-ground workshop to help their team shift their mindset to think like a network scientist, followed by data collection and analysis work to help them understand how they currently connect with partners and networks. Finally, we’re helping them begin tracking their community partners for the future using our community partnership relationship management software, PARTNER.

“There’s very little data about what it takes to create effective cross-sector collaboration. What VNL does with network science and data provides real insight into what empowers multi-sector collaboration and networks to advance health in communities around the country and world.”
