Collaborate.Health is a project to promote and sustain practice-based teaching led by Jacey Greece, Clinical Associate Professor and James Wolff, Associate Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health. The mission of Collaborate.Health is to solve pressing public health challenges and advance the field of public health by:
- Establishing and maintaining meaningful relationships between professionals within partner organizations and BUSPH students and faculty,
- Providing partner organizations with high-quality deliverables tailored to fit their priorities and client base, and
- Engaging students in current public health problems and preparing them for leadership within the field.
This is accomplished by 1) an outward facing website (collaborate.health.bu.edu) that brings together three important public health stakeholder groups—Partner Organizations, BUSPH Student Leaders, and BUSPH Faculty—in an effort to establish collaborations and promote work products, and 2) an online collaboration tool through Practera that allows for seamless collaboration and ongoing assessment during the semester among the three stakeholder groups.
