“Let’s Get Back on Track” Initiative

Developed by the Rhode Island Public Health Institute, the City of Providence Healthy Communities Office, and the newly formed Providence Community Clinics Network, Let’s Get Back on Track is a health literacy initiative that aims to provide Rhode Islanders with a comprehensive, one-stop guide to access the resources and tools they need to take control of their health and well-being and develop a better understanding of the healthcare system. The Let’s Get Back on Track resource library* was created as part of a mission to identify and address various, health-related information gaps impacting underserved populations in Rhode Island, many of which arose or were amplified during the COVID-19 pandemic.   

The information included in this resource library was prioritized based on findings from a needs assessment survey PCCN conducted over a period of three months, which included questions related to community members’ physical and mental health; housing needs; access to healthy food; communication preferences and more. 

Providence Community Clinic Network

Formed in 2022, the Providence Community Clinic Network (PCCN) is a coalition of public health leaders working at several nonprofit, public safety net clinics operating across the City of Providence. Together, the PCCN is working to identify and address health disparities in the Providence community. 

The coalition was formed through a partnership between the Rhode Island Public Health Institute and the City of Providence Healthy Community Office (HCO). 

PCCN’s member clinics include Open Door Health, Clinica Esperanza, Rhode Island Free Clinic, Lifespan Community Clinics, and Providence Community Health Centers.
