Meet the participants...

As we get closer to the event, we will be profiling the participating organizations. This week, we invite you to learn more about the Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut, the VA Center for Implementation Practice and Research Support and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Mission: To serve as a catalyst that engages residents and communities in shaping a health system that provides universal access to quality health care and promotes health in Connecticut. We believe that health care is a fundamental right and that our work is part of a broader movement for social and economic justice.

Learn about SustiNet, a new Foundation proposal to control health care costs, save Connecticut’s families and businesses money, and make coverage available to everyone who needs it in the state.

The VA Center for Implementation Practice and Research Support (CIPRS) is a new QUERI resource center that aims to facilitate accelerated improvement in the quality and performance of the VA healthcare delivery system through enhanced VA implementation practice and research. CIPRS programs include education, technical assistance and consultation to VA implementation practitioners and researchers, and development of implementation theory and methods. CIPRS also facilitates better linkages and partnerships between VA implementation researchers and VA clinical practice and policy leaders. CIPRS collaborates with CIDER, HERC and VIReC in assessing and meeting the needs of the VA implementation community.

Mission: To support children, families, and communities as they strengthen and create conditions that propel vulnerable children to achieve success as individuals and as contributors to the larger community and society.

“We envision a nation that marshals its resources to assure that all children have an equitable and promising future – a nation in which all children thrive.”
