The BUILD Health Challenge (BUILD) launched its third cohort in the fall of 2019 with 18 dynamic communities from across the US, all committed to supporting community-driven cross-sector collaboratives. Over the last three years, the collaboratives—led by community-based organizations, public health departments, hospitals, residents, and partners—worked together to not only address root causes of chronic disease, but also advance health equity.
Here are their stories of change, of impact, and of resilience. We profile their journeys and the influence of social, economic, and cultural shifts that occurred as they worked to ensure better health for all. Every month for the rest of 2022 and into January 2023, BUILD will share new stories on this page. (Unlinked stories are not yet available.) We invite you to read about each community’s path to driving sustainable improvements in community health.
