Community Commons Brings Local Health Initiatives Together

document Tools
Summary
The Community Commons, a social network (and much more) founded by Advancing the Movement and IP3 and supported by groups such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Kaiser Permanente and the YMCA of the USA, aims to aid community health organizations and government health agencies in connecting and solving public health problems through cooperation..
Description
The core of the Commons is the Map of the Movement: a national map that denotes more than 300 groups and initiatives that have signed onto the website. Local officials could zoom into their region on the map and find Let’s Move or Pioneering Healthier Communities groups nearby.

“We want to help you get connected to others and help others get connected to you,” said Jamie Kleinsorge, program assistant at the Community Initiatives Network, which has been involved in the site's development, during the YMCA’s Healthier Communities Learning Institute in Denver this week.
