The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Commonwealth Fund are supporting a free webinar on the role of a new, emerging strategy for facilitating primary care transformation and improving community health—“Health Extension.” The Primary Care Extension Program is incorporated into the Affordable Care Act in Section 5405. This model has been adapted in the health sector from the successful Cooperative Extension Service employed in the Agricultural sector. “Health Extension” is now being developed and tested in 18 states.
A new online toolkit on the range of applications of Health Extension, how to get started and where to get help is being launched on September 30 at 11:00AM MDT. You can access the toolkit at .
