The Health Collaborative, the regional multidisciplinary partnership that spans city, county, and state borders, is working to build a strong network across sectors; educate key stakeholders and the community on promising practices; and implement a community action plan. The community action plan serves as a blue print for both short-term projects and long-term implementation strategies that focus on policy, systems, and environmental changes to create a healthier Dan River region, which includes Pittsylvania County, VA; Danville, VA; and Caswell County, NC.
Healthy Places by Design is working closely with the Danville Regional Foundation to engage in collaborative planning and implementation strategies to improve the health and wellness of the Dan River Region.
“I feel like we are making great progress with our collaborative. The group is very pleased with the level of technical assistance provided. They want guidance, support, and training while continuing to lead decision making and really feel ownership in the process. Tim and Joanne [at Healthy Places by Design] have absolutely hit the mark.”
