While it’s not unusual for decision-makers to consider cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) primarily as a tool to reduce costs, in reality the greatest value of these arrangements comes in the form of a more effective public health presence in the community. Join us for this webinar, where Health Director Paul Pettit will describe how he used the opportunities presented by combining management teams to gain new efficiencies and make practice improvements for two county health departments in rural western New York.

The Cross-sector Innovation Initiative (CSII) — a three-year endeavor to identify and support public health, healthcare and social services organizations striving to build stronger, sustainable connections to better meet the goals and needs of the people they serve and ultimately improve health equity — has released a call for proposals seeking collaborations aimed at aligning and supporting partnerships among public health, healthcare, and social services sectors.
One way we collect and test tools, techniques, expertise and resources is through our Small Grants Program, which allows us to learn from public health departments as we assist them in their collaboration work. Learn more in this message from the Director of the Center for Sharing Public Health Services.
