A couple months ago, we chatted with our friends in Hood River about a site visit to see the Pathways work in action. We were excited to meet with local partners who had come to a similar conclusion that “coordinating the coordinators” and organizing community assets to improve health was a noble and achievable community goal.
However, the team in Hood River has been selected for a large investment from an important funder. They are under a tremendous amount of pressure to be ready for this big announcement. Most of us in this field can relate to the pressure that can put on non-profits and community efforts, and we know big investments are few and far between. Hood River graciously asked if we could delay our visit. We could not, in good conscience, ask them to power through on this, and so we are canceling the site visit.
We know this is a let down, however there will be another opportunity to get up close and personal with Pathways at the Pathways to Community Care Coordination Summit in Ohio on September 29th and 30th.
While we were excited about the site visit to Hood River, we think the technical assistance and networking with many of the regions implementing the Pathways model may even be better! More info below:
