CCS in the News

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.
