Community-based organizations (CBOs) in our PPS have begun to convene to explore the role of social services in DSRIP projects. Participants discussed strategies for coordinating social, healthcare, and community services and strengthening the role of CBOs in our PPS. They will also form work groups to help the CSO engage the Bronx community and integrate community-based services into DSRIP projects.
We will host more discussion sessions in the upcoming weeks to allow every PPS member that provides community-based services to participate in these conversations and work groups. Future topics will also include cultural competency and health literacy. We will distribute event invitations with further details. Please let Albert Alvarez know if you are interested in joining a discussion session.
