Welcome


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.

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.

Inform state and national health policy discussions through research, program evaluation, and dissemination that focus on social determinants of health and health system improvements.
