Description: Join us for this informative and fun webinar highlighting the value of multi-sector collaboration, education and relationship building. If the pandemic taught us anything, none of us can do community health by ourselves.  From being a catalyst for social connection, being in motion both inside and out,  or creating 3rd space we’ve got a ton of resources, energy and expertise to share when it comes to engaging community members, supporting our professionals and being advocates for community health.

Registration is required.
