CHHS Visit from Dr. Tom Pollack
The College of Health & Human Services hosted a visit by Mr. Tom Pollack from the Urban Institute on Monday, January 7th. Mr. Pollack talked with faculty and community partners about the Community Platform, a web-based tool that promotes community collaborations by integrating data about community needs and assets and by creating maps that visually depict the location of community resources and assets. Features of the Community Platform are customizable and would yield a community-wide planning and collaboration tool. The CHHS is leading the effort to bring this capability to our region.
