Decreased resources and changing priorities among funders are challenging community-based organizations to become more creative in how they sustain their evidence-based healthy aging programs. While significant attention has focused on integration with healthcare systems to provide this source of sustainability, what is needed is a more global and diverse approach—one that includes advocacy at multiple levels and involves program developers, community organizations, and newly empowered participants who have benefited from programs. In this webinar, the Evidence-Based Leadership Council, a national collaborative of program developers and community implementers, shares its experiences and successes with scaling and sustaining programs through partnerships, community outreach and strategic steps towards policy change.

Participants will:

  • Be able to identify three benefits to partnering with program developers in long-term sustainability efforts;
  • List three ways to engage newly empowered participants in future program efforts; and,
  • Identify three solutions to the challenges of partnering with community organizations.


Jennifer Raymond, JD, MBA, is chief strategy officer for Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley and director of the Healthy Living Center of Excellence, the statewide hub for dissemination of and contracting for evidence-based self-management programs in Massachusetts. Raymond is responsible for strategic planning and sustainability, overseeing an 80-plus member provider network of community-based organizations and working to integrate these programs with a variety of healthcare payers.
