Professional Development 

The Long Island Health Collaborative functions under the Collective Impact Model. The collective impact model involves the commitment of a diverse group to reach a common goal. The LIHC's goal of a healthy Long Island community is shared by many, and accomplished with the help of active and equal participants.

This is a list of resources to jump-start a population health approach to affect change in your community. The Long Island Health Collaborative often refers to these resources to find best practices, motivation, and proven research to support and inspire our work. We hope you can too!
