Building Partnerships: Health Plans and Community-based Organizations

  • This event has ended.


This webinar will explore the benefits of partnerships between health plans and community-based organizations to establish a network with local leadership and support community integration for persons with disabilities. Social determinants of health – such as affordable and accessible housing, transportation, nutritional adequacy, and social and familial supports – may impact participant health outcomes and create challenges for providers and health plans. Partnerships built on bringing together the competencies and knowledge of medical providers and community-based organizations assist with both the transitional needs of participants as well as longer-term support for success in the community. This webinar will highlight how one Center for Independent Living has created such a partnership program in Southern Colorado, with services to engage participants and improve their integration in the local community.

Featured Speakers:

  • Chris Duff, Disability Practice and Policy Consultant
  • Lori Peterson, Collaborative Consulting
  • Patricia Yeager, Executive Director, The Independence Center
  • Paul Castro, Former CEO, Jewish Family Services of LA
