ONE Health is a partnership between Regional One Health and Camden Coalition, funded in part by the Assisi Foundation of Memphis. Together, Regional One Health and Camden Coalition want to understand the underlying reasons people in the community become patients, and what can be done to reduce or remove those reasons.
“One of our core principles is we’re not here to sell a model,” said Lauran Hardin, Senior Director of Education & Curriculum at Camden Coalition. “We’re here to share resources that will help, but there is an abundance of resources here in Memphis. In this work the most important thing is everyone in the community and how they’re connected. We’re not reinventing the wheel. It’s bringing together everyone’s expertise.”
The next steps are data analysis, asset mapping and co-design. We want to understand the population and opportunity and then better understand the strengths in the organization and the possibilities for partnership in the community. Finally, as we’re informed by data and asset mapping we want to answer “What is the problem we are trying to solve?”
