The Creating Health Collaborative


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.

Although the above reports have been driven by the meetings of the Creating Health Collaborative, they’ve also been informed by the work of the many other community-oriented practitioners that I’ve learnt from across my work. 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.
