Manager Community-based Health Projects
Tackling Entrenched Public Health Challenges Utilizing Project Management Strategy
Project Managers know the value of pulling skills and resources from different divisions in order to come up with new, innovative solutions. Spokane Regional Health District is applying this approach to tackling entrenched public health challenges in our community. With a newly established position, Community Project Manager, SRHD is working to leverage both internal resources across the organization, as well as community partners, to address both chronic and emergent community challenges like opioid misuse, increased suicide rates, family violence and trauma, and chronic disease. The approach brings the strength of public health--convening community—with a strength of the private sector—project management. The blending is not without its challenges. This session will describe what a community project looks like, how leveraging resources from grant funded programs requires collaborative planning, and how Project Management is beginning to be applied.
