Our region is currently working on development of community health centres using a community development model. We are working collaboratively with a number of community partners and this resource will be very useful. One of our community health promotion initiatives-a heart health project -is looking at tools for dissemination of the lessons learned on community mobilization. Again this will be helpful. Thanks

Who I am Use of CTB
I am the real John Sullivan (not that other guy who beat me to the guest book). I came to this realization after one brief moment of deja vu...or did I just dream that I was experiencing deja vu? It is with that degree of certainty that I proclaim I am John Sullivan. Truth be known I am just one of 300,000+ pedestrians in Wichita looking for ways to make things work. My preliminary review has me believing this site can help (have I thought that before?). Does the occurrence of one thought prove our existence as Descartes believed? I don't know. The dream of a deja vu experience ought to mean something, shouldn't it?

I am the Director of the Missouri CHART (Community Health Assessment Resource Team). We have been extensively involved in coalition development, community assessment, leadership training, issue prioritization, etc. for the past 3 years. I have a vast amount of information (i.e. a series of 5 manuals on the CHART Process, data resources, community development materials, etc) that I believe would be useful to add to the site. Missouri has a very strong state level partnership whose members include the MO DOH, the hospital assoc. the medical assocs, nursing, universities, - 30 in all, who support the CHART model, and who work through their members to improve health status in Missouri communities. I love this site - I saw your presentation at APHA. As a member of the Coalition for Healthier Cities & Communities in the U.S., I also support the development of one site, and I believe this one is it. Great work - I think you'll see tremendous use of the site, especially once the word gets out to a broader audience.

I'm beginning a new job in a few days - that of Program Director for a local volunteer agency. In order to not walk in on my first day totally ignorant, I hopped on the Net to see what I could find. And my first try was a veritable gold mine! I landed right here! Even though I can't print or download everything (YET!), I've learned much already. Now I've gone from merely excited about my new position to 'through the stratosphere' on the excitement scale. THANKS!
