Former Vice President Joe Biden told a gathering yesterday that a University of Delaware initiative could be a model for creating healthier and more equitable communities.

He gave his remarks the Vision Coalition of Delaware’s 10th Annual Conference which is focusing on improving partnerships in health and education.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that the coalition is a public-private partnership.

During the conference the University of Delaware announced a new Partnership for Healthy Communities aimed at bringing together community based organizations to provide quality health care.   

There was one down note from Senator Chris Coons.

The Delaware Democrat said the he was not optimistic about access to health care and the Affordable Care Act given the turmoil in Washington D.C.
