Since 1998, the de Beaumont Foundation (www.debeaumont.org) has worked to transform the practice of public health in the United States. Founded by Pierre S. de Beaumont, the Foundation primarily supports practice-based projects that provide training and education to the public health workforce; build public health infrastructure; and improve information and data management through innovative technology. Signature projects include the Practical Playbook, the BUILD Health Challenge, the Big Cities Health Coalition, the Obesity Data Challenge, and numerous academic works including the forthcoming PH WINS study conducted in partnership with ASTHO.
The Look of Silence
The BUILD Health Challenge
The BUILD Health Challenge is designed to encourage communities to build meaningful partnerships among hospitals and health systems, community-based organizations, their local health department, and other organizations to improve the overall health of local residents.
The BUILD Health Challenge is a collaborative initiative of the Advisory Board Company, the de Beaumont Foundation, The Colorado Health Foundation, the and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. While each partner has different missions, strategies and activities, we share a desire to improve community health, promote health equity, stimulate more effective methods of sharing and using health data, foster cross-sector collaboration and identify new models that have the potential for dissemination and replication.
A PRACTICAL PLAYBOOK
A new web-based tool to assist communities in solving common health challenges represents a bold step in integrated care - and a physician assistant played a key advisory role in its creation.
