You Spoke, We Listened: What You Want To Learn

Whether it’s hearing about outstanding programs that build healthy communities or free toolkits and downloads, it’s clear you have an appetite for improvement.

Thanks to all of you who participated in our survey, telling us what kinds of information you’d like to learn in the coming weeks, months and years. We’re thrilled with the feedback and suggestions that help identify the most pressing challenges you face, so we can create resources to help you learn and improve.

A big takeaway from the experience is that you all want more inspiration and resources that will help you build healthy communities—whether it’s for a team of community health workers going door to door or pushing for policy change in neighborhoods or encouraging healthy living in workplaces.

We’ll be responding to your suggestions in future articles (remember, suggestions are always welcome!) but in the meantime, we found a few all-star articles that correspond to your top responses in the poll. Read on to find out what these are and pick up tips you might have missed in the past.

Important Notice!

Part of addressing your needs is expanding both what we write about and what we do. So the next blog article you read from us will be at our parent site, Talance, Inc. We’ll be opening our focus to include tips for building healthy communities everywhere: neighborhoods, health centers, schools, workplaces. You can look forward to more tips, resources and downloads, and also events and educational opportunities.

We hope you’re as excited as we are.
