The Creating Health Collaborative

2014 - 2016

A highly-curated meeting of community-oriented practitioners willing to share the realities of their health-related work


Hosted by Loeb & Loeb in their Manhattan offices, these meetings are safe spaces in which community-oriented practitioners from different sectors are encouraged to share the struggles of their work with a view to learning from each other. Each meeting has about 20 participants and takes five months to prepare. There have been three to date (2014, 2015 & 2016) and more meetings are being considered. If you’re interested in participating, please get in touch.

In acknowledgement of that, I am listing everyone that has shaped my thinking, and hence the above reports. They include those involved in related projects, Communities Creating Health and Wellthcare.
