Community Agency & Health Symposium – May 15 & 16

Join Bridging Health & Community to understand how fostering community agency is key to the future of health. And fundamental to sustainable and equitable communities.

Bridging Health & Community’s inaugural symposium, titled Community Agency & Health, is open to anyone interested in health, whether in the health sector, other sectors or residents in communities.

Learn from innovators building inclusive partnerships between the health sector and local communities. Understand the challenge. Explore two case studies. And get practical tips through six breakouts.

The symposium will go beyond the usual framings of the social determinants of health, cross-sector collaboration or systems change to explore the well-documented potential of community agency.
