AIM CCI Celebrates Community Partnerships by recognizing Innovation In Action Champions!

January 2024

National Healthy Start Association’s AIM CCI project has entered its fifth year of this one-of-its-kind pilot initiative that has worked in partnership with local communities to develop and implement its series of “Community Care” maternal safety bundles to improve disparities in maternal health outcomes. Recognizing the invaluable insight and support of its partners, AIM CCI created the Innovation in Action Champion awards to acknowledge the work of partners across the nation. AIM CCI senior program manager, Karen Chustz, expressed gratitude on behalf of the team. “We are so incredibly grateful for our partnership with local communities that has made it possible to achieve program milestones, which include the development of five non-hospital maternal safety bundles, complementary resources, and national expansion to new communities. Our AIM CCI sites have demonstrated their commitment to facilitating system-level changes to ensure equitable outcomes for all women/birthing persons throughout their network of community partners. We recognize the importance of this work and their commitment with the Innovation in Action Champion awards.”
