Promising Practice: Helping Rural Hawaii THRIVE

Description
Illustrates how community forums sponsored by the Hawaii Public Health Institute (HPHI) and supported by the Hawaii State Office of Primary Care and Rural Health (HI OPCRH) provide a venue for sharing "stories of health" to improve health and wellness in the state. Describes the THRIVE (Tools for Health Resilience in Vulnerable Environments) method used to develop multi-sector partnerships, particularly the opportunity to collectively focus on health equity, facilitate an understanding of social determinants of health, and establish a foundation for future action.
