Normal for Now?

Are you working daily to provide much needed front-line services? Do you find yourself adapting or unable to provide services? We know it’s not business as usual.

Health in Common has settled into a new rhythm from home. We use Zoom to have morning check-ins and to chat over lunch or coffee. We work on projects together and continue to have Wednesday afternoon staff meetings.

While our way of connecting has changed, the work has not. We’ve just taken it online. We continue to facilitate planning sessions with break-out groups and sticky notes; gather data in online focus groups, interviews and surveys; and facilitate workshops that provide the opportunity to engage with others.

We’re also using this time to strengthen our work – moving to an online project management tool and learning new technology.

If there are ways we can help you plan, assess and adapt services – let us know.  We’ll figure out how to work together to make it happen.

P.S. Don’t forget – you can also stay connected with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn!

As part of our goal to share and document our work, Health in Common will be featuring blog posts every month highlighting our services, recent projects we’ve worked on and more.
