Because the social and health issues that prevent individuals from achieving their full potential are highly complex, San Diego County knew that its response must be big and bold.

To improve population health and social well-being, San Diego County launched the social movement Live Well San Diego in 2010. To achieve its goals, this data-driven collective impact strategy leverages hundreds of public-private partnerships throughout the county.

In his Snapshots presentation, Nick Macchione, director of the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, shares examples from San Diego County to illustrate how human services leaders can lead well to live well and promote healthy, safe, and thriving communities. He showcases strategies that tap into the power of the community to achieve collective impact.

Macchione’s Snapshots presentation offers insight on how partnerships—united under a shared vision—can promote better health, safer living, and economic vitality for all residents.
