Community Vital Signs Workshops

Building on our success developing the Community Vital Signs framework in 2010, the Community Benefits Partnership has launched “Phase II: Moving the Needle,” a series of monthly workshops in 2011. Each workshop will be devoted to discussion and networking around two of our 10 health goals/affinity groups. Join other passionate community health stakeholders as we work to “move the needle” on the health indicators we developed in 2010. Each meeting will be an opportunity to discuss key issues with other passionate community health stakeholders. Join us for any or all health goals.

  • Contribute your ideas and discuss assets, best practices, and resource gaps for each health goal
  • Network with other affinity group members
  • Help us map out San Francisco’s many organizations and programs and create a pathway to reach our health goals
