Social determinants of health

We understand that the conditions where you live, learn and work shape your well-being. We’re working to provide you with resources to live a healthier life.

Working at the local level

From research we know your health is intrinsically linked to where you live and spend most of your time. Because of this, we address social determinants of health at the community level. We support organizations and initiatives that provide access to health care services, affordable housing and medicine, which address food scarcity and promote education and job opportunities.
