Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH)
Established in 1997, CCPH is a nonprofit membership organization that promotes health equity and social justice through partnerships between communities and academic institutions. We view health broadly as physical, mental,emotional, social, and spiritual well-being and emphasize partnership approaches to health that focus on changing the conditions and environments in which people live, work, study, pray and play. By mobilizing knowledge, providing
training and technical assistance, conducting research, building coalitions, and advocating for supportive policies, we help to ensure that the reality of community engagement and partnership matches the rhetoric. We work with partners whose mission aligns with our vision. Community engagement is the cornerstone of our work to advance health equity and social justice. Join our team of dedicated professionals applying their technical expertise and creativity to help impacted communities achieve health equity and justice.
