What makes a healthy community? Access to healthy foods, economic opportunity, public safety, and the list goes on. But, the most important factor, and the key to healthier communities is residents that realize they have the power to make positive changes in their neighborhoods.

Jim Diers shares lessons for building broad and inclusive community participation. He emphasizes the power of focusing on the strengths rather than the needs of individuals and their neighborhoods. Jim shares stories of hope from his international travels to illustrate what is possible when individuals and institutions rediscover the power of community.
