"Within the last decade health funders have come to realize that it's important to not just to fund programs in communities, but also to understand the outcomes of those programs and to be a bit more systematic about their evaluation efforts" - Faith Mitchell
In this episode of the Champions for Social Good Podcast, Jamie Serino speaks with Faith Mitchell (@GIHealth_CEO), President & CEO of Grantmakers In Health (@GIHealth), the professional association for health philanthropy.
