In 2014, after determining that the Cobb2020 Healthy Lifestyles Implementation Team and the We Can in Cobb Coalition had many of the same priorities, discussions about a possible merger occurred. Many of the same individuals were serving on both groups and felt that the work was duplicative. Most felt that we could save time and resources by merging the efforts. All We Can In Cobb projects were completed as planned or were adopted by the Cobb2020 Healthy Lifestyles Team to continue. All We Can in Cobb Coalition members selected Cobb2020 workgroups to join and work continued as planned. Additionally, the national We Can resources are still available to the current projects and we have saved significant public health staff time by not having to support two independent volunteer coalitions.
