Hello, our foundation is seeking a consultant who can help identify innovative projects to fund for healthcare for the underserved - "big idea" type initiatives. Can you suggest such a resource? Many thanks.
Hello Diane - Sorry not to have responded yesterday, but we had a big snow storm here in Vermont and my internet was down. I have reached out to two colleagues who are extremely well connected nationally with people and organizations related to underserved communities. I hope to hear from them soon and will pass along names and suggestions. For the best change-making impact, I believe it is essential that the guidance you receive be provided by someone who is deeply ingrained in or a member of the underserved community, and my contacts may suggest a community process rather than a person. A big-picture, transformative type initiative, I'm sure, will be done hand-in-hand with or lead by those affected by the health disparities that concern you.
Very best regards to you and your colleagues at the foundation.
Thank you Barbara! Great points and I really appreciate your insights!
