Rodriguez directs the Center for Place-Based Initiatives, which aims to: identify persons within Austin/Travis County and Central Texas communities who have ideas to improve the health of their communities and neighborhoods; provide timely and customized support to help implement and test ideas — and to scale those shown to be effective; identify and support exceptional people and ideas that may otherwise not have a source for support, and ensure their community impact and sustainability.
