Hospital Involvement in Community Action (HICA) Project


The HICA project is a federally funded research study that seeks to

understand collaborations involving community groups and hospitals whose efforts address broad community health issues. This project is the result of an ongoing collaboration among community development workers and organizations, collaborative health networks, universities and hospitals. The aim of the project is to help determine when, and how, these collaborations can be effective. A series of guidelines for policy and practice will be developed for use by community groups, hospital staff and policy makers.

The HICA project is currently conducting a "Call for Participation", where they are inviting community-hospital initiatives to participate in the first Phase of the project. Your participation in helping to identify what is going on in your area is critical. The HICA project is looking for initiatives that result from collaborations among community groups and hospitals that aim to address community health issues. They are particularly interested in those initiatives with strong community involvement.
