What we're learning

Getting to a healthy dose

CCHE and colleagues at Kaiser Permanente and the University of California, Berkeley have created Healthy Dose: A Toolkit for Boosting the Impact of Community Health Strategies. You can download the toolkit, which includes an interactive guide with an overview of the methodology, a "dose calculator" that helps users plan strategies, and a PowerPoint presentation that introduces audiences to the dose concept.

What's new at CCHE?


SPARCC-e team is evaluating national initiative

How can communities create opportunities for all residents to lead healthy lives? CCHE was selected to partner with Raimi + Associates to evaluate the Strong, Prosperous and Resilient Communities Challenge (SPARCC)—a massive, three-year, $90 million initiative supporting multi-sector collaborative work focused on built environment changes in six U.S. cities. SPARCC is based on the premise that racial equity, health, and climate concerns all play a significant and interrelated role in quality of life.

Learn more about CCHE's SPARCC evaluation and watch a video about strategies under way in the six SPARCC sites.
