30,000 PLEDGES,100 MILLION HEALTHIER LIVES.
To catalyze the I-CAN mobilization efforts, a small group of students organized an international Pledge-A-Thon. For 30 days, IHI Open School Chapters around the world competed to get the most pledges from students, faculty, and community members to improve population health.
Together, these teams led community health projects, raised awareness, facilitated dialogue around important health issues, and gathered commitments to support their improvement efforts.
The results speak volumes to the Open School Chapter Network's capacity for leading change.
