Community Impact

We work to address health disparities in our communities

We believe every person deserves the opportunity to lead a healthy life, regardless of their circumstances

The challenge is, many people don’t have an equal opportunity to live a healthy life due to social and environmental factors. These factors are known as social determinants of health. Through our Community Impact initiative, we work to address social determinants of health in the communities where we live and work. Our goal is to make sure everyone has the chance to reach their full health potential.
