JSI worked with The Rhode Island Foundation to develop recommendations for the Foundation concerning the use of the Fund for a Healthy Rhode Island. JSI's responsibilities under the project included key informant interviews and focus groups, review and synopses of data and studies of Rhode Island, and a scan of other foundations (regional and national). Based on the information collected, JSI compiled a report and developed recommendations for the Foundation. The recommendations provide guidance and options on fund allocation, definition of the Foundation's role and creation of a strategy to strengthen primary care in Rhode Island.
