Creating Impact by Bridging Academia and Community
SPI has deep experience in cross-system collaboration between health and human service systems, education systems, and community systems (inclusive of parent voice) in the County of Ventura specifically, as well as throughout California and nationally. Our work focuses on adaptive leadership for systems transformation to build capacity to provide holistic, quality support to the organizations and communities we serve.
This section of our website showcases some of the impact the SPI team has successfully created since 2014, specifically within our Aging, Prevention, and Behavioral Health focus areas.
