Action Collaborative on Business Engagement in Building Healthy Communities
What is the Collaborative?
The Collaborative is an ad hoc convening mechanism under the auspices of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Roundtable on Population Health Improvement. The Collaborative is a flexible and action-oriented group that welcomes all interested organizations and individuals. Any products and activities associated with this collaborative do not necessarily represent the views of any one organization, the Collaborative, the Roundtable, or the National Academies and has not been subjected to the review procedures of, nor are they a reports or products of, the National Academies.
Building on the momentum of previous roundtable workshops on business engagement in building health communities and applying a health lens to business practices, policies, and investments, this collaborative will promote business engagement in strategies for improving population health with an attention to the health and economic well-being of companies, workers, and communities, whether small, medium, or large.
The Collaborative’s purpose is to catalyze and facilitate private sector partnerships and actions of business, health, community, and public sectors to work together to enhance the lives of workers and communities by improving the nation’s health and wealth.
The Collaborative creates an active space where participants feel compelled to contribute to a transformational effort that makes powerful and measurable impact on business success, societal value and improves population health.
The Collaborative is co-chaired by Cathy Baase, a consultant on health strategy for The Dow Chemical Company and Robert McLellan of the Dartmouth Institute and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. The vice-chair is Michelle Zamperetti, the manager of community health programs for GE Healthyimagination.
