Health centers are important conveners of community—through their partnerships and the organizations themselves. Building inclusive communities with consumer presence, perspective and voice at the center requires thoughtful structures, intentional supports and the meaningful participation of everyone. Yet consumer participation remains a challenge for many. This interactive learning session will facilitate the exchange of knowledge among consumers, providers, staff and administrators about the imperative of, and barriers to, meaningful consumer participation in organizations and beyond. Participants will explore strategies for creating spaces for meaningful consumer participation and the organizational supports needed to do so.
