The Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPS) serves as the national program manager for the Kansas Health Foundation (KHF) Community Engagement Initiative, a program to support residents of Kansas communities with elevated concentrations of health risks in their effort to create and implement policy, systems and environmental change strategies that lead to healthier communities.
In consultation with KHF and a national advisory board, CGPS is responsible for designing and implementing the overall initiative including supporting resident recruitment and coalitions, facilitating technical assistance, managing program staff and benchmarking progress towards goals. The long-term goals of the Community Engagement Initiative are to improve student outcomes and to increase healthy eating and active living in the participating communities.
