Budgetary constraints and political initiatives make it even more imperative today for systems within and between schools and community institutions to unite to support health. Project data from multiple communities will be used to illustrate the existing challenges to effective collaboration. Taking physical activity as an example, the presentation will identify how school and community institutions can better unite to contribute to increased opportunities for physical activity; and offer suggestions for facilitating these collaborations.
