West Central Public Health Parternship: A Case Study in Public Health Collaboration

Health officials from six counties along Colorado’s Western Slope came together with a common goal of strengthening the region’s public health infrastructure culminating in the establishment of the West Central Public Health Partnership (WCPHP).
