The former P2 Collaborative unveiled a new name, Population Health Collaborative, during its Spotlight on Population Health (SOPHi) Award banquet last month, while also honoring health and wellness leaders.
P2 was a shortened version of “Pursuing Perfection,” a grant-funded program, said John D. Craik, executive director of the organization. “Our new name is a bit more descriptive and intuitive,” he said, “and it reflects our move to address the issues that contribute to sustaining improved health for members of the community. We have shifted our focus to tackle the systems, policy and built environment issues that support or hinder the health of Western New Yorkers over the long term,”
Winners included Phil Haberstro, executive director of the Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo, who received the Community Achievement Award. The Rural Outreach Center in Aurora received the Community Impact Award; Greater Buffalo United Accountable Healthcare Network the Data Driven Award; and Crisis Services and Healthy Community Alliance each got the Inclusive Award. Healthy Livable Communities Consortium of Cattaraugus County got the Transparency Award and the Western New York Women’s Foundation received the All-Star Award.
