This funding will provide administrative support to extend the efforts of the LEAP collaborative.

LEAP is a collaboration among UNCG, Cone Health, and Guilford Health Department, with support from Guilford County Schools, Greensboro Parks and Recreation, and Ready for School Ready for Life. The purpose of the effort is to identify common goals and measures that existing program providers and residents can use to inform their health and wellness efforts. LEAP is bringing together multiple stakeholders across the county to collectively determine these goals and measures through various meetings.
