"Rhode to Equity" Applications Now Open

The Rhode to Equity is an innovative funding opportunity made available through EOHHS Health Systems Transformation Project. The intent of this 12-month learning and action collaborative is to provide up to 6 cross-sector teams with the opportunity to test and evaluate strategies that will build leadership and operational capacity for clinical-community linkages, resulting in place-based communities that improve both health and social outcomes. This work will be guided by Somava Saha, MD, MS, Well Being and Equity in the World and Well Being in the Nation Network. Using the Pathways to Population Health tools developed through 100 Million Healthier Lives, the Rhode to Equity will bring together teams from:  


1.           Health Equity Zones (backbone agencies, CBO partners)

2.           Accountable Entities (at both the leadership- and clinic-level)

3.           Community Health Teams

4.           Persons with lived experience of inequity (PLE)
