Building upon the initial H.E.A.T. report and the first phase of community planning, the project seeks to expand the Community Action Board (CAB) model and act as an “operating system” for civic engagement around health equity in Wyandotte County. The project enhances the work of numerous organizations and represents an important feedback loop and community engagement approach. CHCWC is working collaboratively with stakeholders across multiple neighborhoods to develop CABs representing both neighborhood and stakeholder interests across age groups.
A key component is the focus on replication through establishing a documented social design process that can be offered to organizational partners as a capacity building tool. The work is also very connected to the collaborative work underway as part of the Wyandotte County Community Health Improvement Plan.
