Return to Roadmap

The leadership team is a dedicated group of experts working together to provide direction, advice, and guidance for community-integrated health care efforts. The goal is to strengthen and expand integrated, sustainable service systems to provide evidence-based programs.

The team has developed a roadmap to support the aging network in their efforts to integrate evidence-based programs into health care systems. The roadmap consists of tools, resources, technical assistance, and peer-to-peer learning to help network partners navigate the health care landscape and strengthen community-clinical linkages.
