Programs: Fostering Collaboration Among People and Organizations
MCD Public Health uses a collaborative approach to solving our greatest challenges in public health and health care. Over the years, we have helped to establish and staff numerous groups and organizations. Some of these organizations, Maine Cardiovascular Health Council and Maine Public Health Association, continue to be affiliated with MCD. Many others have evolved into independent organizations—including Maine Hospice Council, Maine Dartmouth Family Practice Residency, Maine Primary Care Association, and OnPoint Health Data (formerly MHIC). Today, MCD provides committee support in kind or through public or private funding support for several groups and collaborative initiatives.
