Chuck McKetney and Julie Freestone


For 20 years, community-based health coalitions have been an integral part of the Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) strategy to improve community health. With two decades of experience and insight and the results of a recent survey from 100 members of 14 coalitions, this report provides useful, practical information on running efficient coalitions, evaluating coalition work and knowing when to end a coalition.
