Well, I think I can call Bill Beery "one of our own." He is a distinguished
health education professional, with many other talents in the healthcare
arena, and as long as I've known his name, he has been associated with Group
Health - the Center for Health Promotion and the Group Health Foundation.
Others at Group Health know much more than I do about this professional.
I do know that he and Howard Greenwald, Ph.D. are authors of a new
publication, Health for All: Making Community Collaboration Work. "This
practical guide describes how healthcare organizations, public agencies,
community organizations, grass roots groups, and even private citizens are
pooling their time and resources to improve community health. Not only does
it provide examples of successful partnerships, it will help you recognize
and confront the factors that can derail your efforts. The book includes
appendices listing extensive resources to help with collaboration efforts,
including foundations that are interested and strategies for evaluation."
The book is available from Health Administration Press, a division of the
Foundation of the American College of Healthcare Executives. Order by
phone - (301) 362-6905 or online at http://www.ache.org/hap.cfm. Cost is
$52.00 plus shipping and tax where required. Congratulations, Bill. Margo
