Leading with Health: Unexpected Leaders within Health Collaboratives


Accountable Communities for Health (ACHs) are led by a backbone organization. Traditionally, this role is filled by an organization within the healthcare sector, such as a hospital or clinic system. ACH backbone leadership from outside the healthcare sector brings different perspectives to the work, as well as challenges to navigate. In this session, Leaders from Texas Accountable Communities for Health Initiative (TACHI) non-healthcare backbone sites will share their experiences, plans, and learnings to date.
