The Quaboag Valley Community Development Corporation (QVCDC) received a Synergy Initiative Planning Grant of $203,763 to use an inclusive, consumer-centered approach (Design Thinking) for the planning and development of a sustainable, scalable model for rural transportation to improve health outcomes for high priority populations and influence health and transportation policy long-term. Applying Design Thinking principles will also build community capacity by developing team-based approaches to solving other complex community problems affecting health.
