Communities Joined in Action National Conference

The mission of Communities Joined in Action (CJA) is to connect and equip communities with tools to improve health equity and well-being. CJA is a national membership organization committed to improving health and eliminating disparities.  CJA is a leader in mobilizing communities to build public-private community-based collaborative that achieve better health for all people at less cost.  CJA assists thousands of communities across the United States in building effective, efficient and sustainable local delivery systems that improve health and eliminate disparities.

CJA brings together community leaders from multiple sectors and walks of life from across the nation to learn from one another. Each year at the CJA annual meeting and conference, talented and committed community and national health leaders come together to share innovations, lessons-learned and inspiration. Together, these forward leaders develop and leave with ideas, tools and action plans that improve health for all people. The conference will include compelling plenary presentations by national leaders, group discussions of current challenges and opportunities, and focused workshops to share and discuss local innovations. The conference will help community leaders better understand how to work toward creating equity in health and health care delivery.
