What We Do

The team behind A Coalition Trip to Health is dedicated to guiding local and regional community-health leaders on a path towards successful management and information tracking for health coalitions. We aim to provide resources and practical tools to aid in the actualization of these coalitions and their goals.

A Coalition Trip to Health is made possible by The Community Health Engagement Program (CHEP) of the Indiana Clinical Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) in collaboration with the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI.

This website was inspired by a partnership with a community health coalition in Clinton County, Indiana. Since 2008, the Healthy Communities of Clinton County Coalition has received more than $5 million in grant funding to put towards the health and well-being of its residents. Over the years, the county has seen improvements in their health rankings and they continue to work towards a healthier community. The HCCCC’s continued dedication to improving its community’s health outcomes provides an excellent example of what can be achieved with strong, well-organized coalitions.

“The biggest success over the last several years is an improvement in people’s perception of how well their community is doing. People seem happier, more engaged, more positive, and have a better outlook on the future of their community.”
