Health in Common News


Join us for an opportunity to speed network and exchange ideas.

Each time you attend a breakfast, your name will be entered into a draw for up to two days of Health in Common services. The draw will be made at the last breakfast on February 16th, 2017. Register today!



Registration for CCEDNET’s annual conference, The Gathering, is now open! The theme for 2016 is “Include. Act. Transform.” It is a clear call to action, encouraging us to collaborate and bridge gaps between different groups within our communities as we work to build a more equitable and sustainable society.

HiC’s very own Daniel Gravenor will be facilitating a workshop on Managing and Analyzing Evaluation Data. We hope to see you there!
