Community Partnerships


Many of the division of Behavioral Medicine members work collaboratively with colleagues in neighborhoods, clinics, schools, and senior centers. Our partners include community organizations, coalitions, public health departments, a variety of government agencies, voluntary health groups, health care provider groups, and patient organizations. We work locally, across the United States, and internationally. From our community partners we learn about the health needs and priorities of their communities. Together, we discover creative solutions that can be further developed, evaluated, and transferred to other settings. Many of our projects focus on improving the health of individuals, the organizations that serve them, and the community as a whole. Please explore the links below and get to know some of our community partners.
