This session will discuss how to partner with local health and community organizations to improve the health of your community members. The partnerships are especially centered on diverse underrepresented communities. We are particularly partnering with Latinx and Pacific Island partners among other groups and will also give participants an opportunity to create their own plan. Specific examples will be shared and an opportunity for participants to share their experience as well.

Learning objectives:
Participants will understand the value of partnering with community groups representing diverse populations
Participants will learn how to create effective, impactful and sustainable partnerships
Participants will have an opportunity to create a plan for a partnership in their own community
