Winning on Wellness in Wake: Leveraging the Live Well San Diego Model
Advocates for Health in Action (AHA) hosted another community conversation in its Making Great Places series on April 15 with 185 community leaders coming together to learn about how Live Well San Diego is changing population health in San Diego County.
Nick Macchione, San Diego County, Deputy Chief Administrator and Director, Health and Human Services Agency
Winning on Wellness: How Collective Impact Builds Healthier, Safer and Thriving Communities featured guest speaker Nick Macchione, Director of the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency in California. Elected, municipal and county leaders, along with health care, business, school, non-profit and faith-based leaders in Wake County came together for this discussion.
Under Mr. Macchione’s leadership, in 2010, the County of San Diego launched Live Well San Diego, a regional collaborative that convenes businesses, governments, military/veteran agencies, schools, hospitals, clinics, social services and other non-profits, including faith-based organizations, around the shared goals of building better health, encouraging safer living and promoting economic vitality for the 3.2 million residents of San Diego County.
As a data-driven collective impact model, Live Well San Diego involves all county departments, cities and over 170 different organizations and has demonstrated large-scale population-based improvements.
Many thanks to our sponsors and presenting partners for helping AHA make this event possible.
