Community Health Training Institute and Ounce of Prevention Conference

The Department of Public Health supports capacity building for healthy communities through a Community Health Training Institute and the annual Ounce of Prevention conference.

Community Health Training Institute

The Department offers online and in-person trainings throughout the year through its Community Health Training Institute, which is managed by Health Resources in Action. These trainings are designed to increase the capacity and skills of community health leaders and stakeholders, enabling them to build and sustain coalitions and partnerships that support healthy communities and improve health outcomes across the Commonwealth. View the curriculum and sign up for email updates through the Community Health Training Institute’s website.

The Community Health Training Institute also recently launched a new free tool that makes it easy to find coalitions working toward healthier communities in Massachusetts. Use the Community Health Training Institute Coalition Finder to see coalitions in your area or doing similar work to foster peer-to-peer communications.
