The BUILD Health Challenge, with support from Campbell Soup Company, is offering a unique opportunity for communities to build their capacity for addressing upstream health challenges. Using the BUILD principles grounded in health equity as the framework for this training, participants will gain dynamic insights into how their community can effectively drive sustainable improvements in community health.

We are specifically looking for organizations based in, or serving, Camden, NJ, Charlotte, NC, or Maxton, NC.

(If you are from outside these communities, you may still sign up for the webinars – registration link below.)

Selected participants will have the opportunity to participate in:

  • A specialized webinar series focused on the BUILD Principles and broader themes related to advancing systems change, policy shifts, and upstream efforts.
  • Exclusive in-person convening in Camden, NJ, featuring workshops and peer networking opportunities to support your promotion of community health.
  • A follow up call or video conference with experts who can help you understand and apply learnings from this initiative.

If selected, participants will receive a variety of training opportunities. This initiative does not include a financial award.
