Health Equity Learning Collaborative

Health Equity Learning Collaborative

Learning collaborative applications are due Friday, January 26, 2024.

Overview

The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) is hosting a Health Equity Learning Collaborative aimed at exploring how health centers are utilizing social drivers of health (SDOH) data, patient and community voice, and community partnerships to advance health equity. This learning collaborative will weave together health equity concepts and strategies that many health centers are considering or implementing while intentionally digging deeper to understand the root causes of health inequities. The purpose of the learning collaborative is to build upon current health center knowledge and understanding of SDOH and health equity by applying principles of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion, and exploring the areas of intersection and interdependence.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the learning collaborative, participants will:

  • Develop an awareness of how the complex interrelationships between identity, power dynamics, privilege, influence policies, systems, and structures.
  • Understand the significance of incorporating community voice in health equity efforts to identify potential strategies for community engagement.
  • Understand how SDOH screening, community voice, and partnerships can support systemic transformation within health centers and other community health efforts.
  • Explore promising practices and strategies for enhancing health outcomes among racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse groups, as well as priority populations.

Requirements

  • Participating Community Health Centers (CHCs) will need to allocate a project team consisting of 1-4 staff members. Staff members should be consistent throughout the learning collaborative to ensure ongoing participation and knowledge retention. It is strongly recommended to have at least one senior leader, manager or director to participate.
  • Attend and contribute to each of the learning collaborative sessions, including completing homework assignments.  
  • Complete an evaluation at the end of the learning collaborative and 90-days after the conclusion of the learning collaborative. Both evaluations are part of the HRSA reporting requirements for T/TA activities.
