Online/Dial-up Conversations with John and Peter


Deborah Puntenny in Conversation with John and Peter

How Community Action Shapes Health

June 6 at 1 pm Eastern

Deborah has been a colleague of John McKnight and Jody Kretzmann at the Asset-Based Community Development Institute for 25 years. Her work uses the asset-based community development approach to addressing neighborhood health issues.

Much of Deborah's work focuses on how engaged citizens can become effective co-producers of their own health and well-being.

We will take about fifteen minutes to talk about what she means by that and then transition into how all of our experiences in working with citizens to build asset-based communities can be translated into your own work.

After our opening remarks we’ll open the conversation up for your questions and insights.
