Presented by: Johanna Adams, Letitia Johnson, Wilson Majee & Beverly Maltsberger (University of Missouri). Numerous agencies and institutions, including Extension programs, are investing large amounts of resources into developing healthier communities. Many of these programs and services, as well as their funding sources, are closely related. And yet, collaboration is spotty, at times there is even an atmosphere of competitiveness. This lack of coordination may actually be negatively impacting health indicators. Through several case studies this webinar will demonstrate how Extension, with its strong ties to local communities and nationwide networks, may be most suitable for serving as a hub for collaboration in promoting community and health improvement.
