Join NOBC to Participate in an Innovation Project to Increase Health Equity!

The Mississippi Action Coalition, in a collaborative role with the Nurses On Boards Coalition, is honored and proud to have received one of 16 Health Equity Innovation Grant Awards. We have embarked on a project, “Strengthening Nurses’ Voices to Improve Health Equity: A Community-based Approach, ”to identify and address gaps and barriers preventing nurses from leading change, dismantling issues of structural racism and addressing the impact of the social determinants of health within communities. We have already engaged in data collection and data analysis.

Now we are ready for you to Join Us in an environment of innovative thinking and approaches – town hall meetings – to identify gaps and barriers, thus leading to development and dissemination of educational programming/tools based upon identified needs and approaches to help Action Coalition members prepare and pursue board opportunities and track our results.

We invite your active engagement! The first 20 Action Coalitions to contact us at  nobc@nursesonboardscoalition.org will not only receive next steps i.e., date/time of kick-off meeting, your role, your participation (approximately eight hours), but also a $1,000 stipend for each participating Action Coalition, at the conclusion of the commitment. JOIN US to be a part of raising the tide of nurse trustees pursuing health equity through collaboration and community-based approaches.

Thank you for your consideration.  We eagerly await your response.
