One way in which Community Solutions shares our research, analysis, ideas, and recommendations with the community is by hosting a variety of educational events—large and small—locally, in the region, and across the state. Some events are created and presented independently; some are offered in partnership with other organizations.  Most programs and events are open to the public and publicized on the News and Events tab of this site’s homepage and in our weekly e-bulletins, “Five Things You Need to Know This Week,” and "Weekly Briefing."

Community Solutions actively engages the media and helps keep them informed about health, social, and economic issues so that they, in turn can help inform and influence policy makers and the public. Our outreach to the community includes, but isn’t limited to, submissions of op-eds, letters to the editor, news releases, and ideas for news and feature stories. We also serve as a resource for media representatives seeking reliable data and sound, nonpartisan, data-driven analyses of critical community issues. Our staff are called upon as expert guests for news radio and television programs. And we seek meetings with editorial boards when we believe their voice can add persuasion and help shape community discussion of important topics. In our Press Room, you can find a collection of news links, releases, and public testimonies.
