People at IACH conference

IACH Champions

Our IACH Champions are critical to the strength and transformation of the work we do. To continue our positive impact in the community health sector, expand our high-impact student experiences and promote innovative community engaged research and programs, we need collaboration and engagement from prominent thought leaders in the industry. Our champions work closely with the IACH to inform and advise our work while serving as mentors to students and liaisons to the local, regional and national community health network.
