As part of the Community Engagement Initiative at the University of Delaware, the Partnership for Healthy Communities (PHC) seeks to improve the health and well-being of Delaware residents, especially those living in communities that experience social and economic disadvantages. We do this in partnership with community-based organizations, state and local agencies, students, and colleagues across the University, and communities themselves. We seek to:
Connect community-based organizations and state agencies with existing University resources and faculty to advance shared interests in health promotion.
Build the University’s capacity for translational research—including interdisciplinary and multi-sector research and evaluation—that focuses on the development of healthy communities and populations.
- Our Steering Committee helps us build this capacity.
- Existing university partnerships are the foundation of this work.
Engage the University and broader community in health-related teaching and service that promote improved health outcomes at the population level and reduced health inequities across and within communities.
