2. Connect - Engaging People with Lived Experience
This toolkit was developed by the People with Lived Experience Workgroup and Community Champions from 100 Million Healthier Lives, and is brought to you in partnership with 100 Million Healthier Lives and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.
Trust and relationships are the foundation of all of our work. It's so simple to get started--just have a conversation with someone. You will be surprised at what they share with you, whether it's over a kitchen table, a park bench, or a shared meal. Building trust and rapport takes time, but it's worth it! Existing relationships with community residents, organizations, community leaders, partnerships, and those trusted by the community will help you connect with the right people.
- Connect with people with lived experience who can contribute meaningfully to your work
- Build relationships and make connections with the community as a whole
