THE OHIO HPAC
Creating a COmmunity Collaborative to address issues with a
learn it, LIve it, and Share it approach across the community.
The NorthEast Ohio Medical College (NEOMED) created a pipeline to professional program to engage youth across Ohio and have them become health and community advocates. They created a Citizen Health Program called HPAC or Health Practitioners Affinity Communities. IN about 100 schools in 30 counties this program has validated the concept and is a recognized Best Practice by the Force for Health Foundation.
