Learning and sharing experiences is what the Paso del Norte Health Foundation’s program team is doing with other Foundations from around the country. This collaboration is part of The Roadmaps Collaborative Learning with support and funding managed by Active Living By Design and part of the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program, a collaboration between Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. Members from the Path Foundation, Interact for Health and Danville Regional Foundation recently traveled to El Paso and visit several Health Foundation grantee programs in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas. Meeting are focused on learning about programs, practices and approaches to improving health in areas related to school health, community orientation, mental health, school gardens, food and equality work and trails. In April, the group traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to visit the Path Foundation and later this year they will continue the road trip to Danville, Virginia with the Danville Regional Foundation and to Cincinnati, Ohio, with Interact for Health Foundation.
After all the visits, the group will compile a report on their findings that can be used for future program design and evaluation.
