What is the North Sound LIN?
The North Sound Oral Health Local Impact Network (LIN) is a partnership of committed organizations in the North Sound region (Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, Island, and San Juan Island counties) working together to improve oral health equity.
The Arcora Foundation and North Sound Accountable Community of Health (ACH) commit resources to help partners achieve LIN-specific goals over a five to eight-year timeline and are guided by a regional Steering Committee that sets the strategic direction. Partners share resources, best practices, and performance improvement data, and work together on projects.
