Innovation in Public Health Webinar
In this webinar, we learned how Garrett County, MD, a rural Appalachian community, has developed an online community engagement tool and how a universal version of the tool is coming your way soon! https://mygarrettcounty.com/MyGarrettCounty.com is an innovative collaborative platform and planning tool where residents can openly share data, discuss community issues, and suggest solutions to local leaders. In a shift away from traditional planning processes, Garrett County has embraced this new approach of digital collaboration and are working to spread promising innovation in public health. In fact, a version of this tool is being replicated and piloted in five other communities around the country. The Public Health National Center for Innovations talked about how these distinct communities are building out a tailored version of the tool themselves and how you could begin to think about similar work.
