MAPP named finalist in national initiative

MAPP of the Southern Kenai Peninsula announced this week it has been named a finalist in a national initiative aimed at accelerating the journey to improve health and wellbeing.

That means MAPP, or Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships,  is in the running to receive funding from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to become a leading community on health improvement, as part of an initiative known as SCALE (Spreading Community Accelerators through Learning and Evaluation). 

With two years of grant support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, SCALE aims to work with communities to develop capability to improve health and to spread effective community-driven approaches across the United States, according to a MAPP press release.
