We believe the most effective way to create change is through collaboration. We strive to understand health inequities that affect our communities by redefining who community “experts” are. We learn from advocates, leaders, and those with lived experiences through strategic meetings that ultimately drive our efforts as an organization.
With everything we do, we aim to create change with action. Through each strategic meeting we plan to build reports with our findings that ultimately shape the way our Foundation seeks partnerships. We want to build a healthy community by finding what is working well, where the gaps are and what partnerships will transform health and wellness for our region in the most sustainable, innovative and collaborative way.
After synthesizing information shared by participants we will publish a report with our findings that will guide our collective efforts to address some of the greatest needs in our region.
For AMY Wellness Foundation, this report will help us design funding toward frameworks that are already working and help fill gaps that still exist.
The emerging themes identified by participants will also guide us in orchestrating targeting listening sessions this summer.
By next year, we hope to host Regional Convening Meetings 2.0 where we can continue to work collectively to address these issues and dive deeper into our plan to impact lasting change.
