Transforming Communities Initiative

In 2016, HealtheConnections joined St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, the Onondaga County Health Department, Near Westside Initiative, Northside Urban Partnership, and the Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion on the community-oriented Transforming Communities Initiative, funded by Trinity Health.

The project focuses on policy, systems, and environmental changes that address the underlying causes of chronic disease and create community environments that support health in several high-needs neighborhoods in the City of Syracuse.

HealtheConnections’ role is to evaluate the local strategies, to measure their impact and ensure their effectiveness in our community. For more information, contact Deborah Gordon-Messer, Population Health Data Analyst, at dgordon-messer@healtheconnections.org.
