The Partnership for Better Health champions and invests in ideas, initiatives, and collaborations to advance equity and improve the health of the people and communities in our region.
We improve health and amplify the voices of those who are not always heard to ensure that all people have the chance to enjoy healthy lives.
We work to effect change in the institutions, systems, policies, and practices that influence health decisions and outcomes in our communities.
With curiosity and humility, we cultivate genuine partnerships among people, groups, and organizations to leverage diverse perspectives, resources, and opportunities.
We are strategic and transparent as we care for the community resources entrusted to the foundation. We hold ourselves accountable by working with our partners to achieve the greatest possible health impacts in our communities.
We are bold in the pursuit of new ideas as we cultivate better health through effective, just, and sustainable solutions that center people with lived experience.
The Partnership for Better Health will be a trusted catalyst, advocate, and steward to promote health equity and justice, ensuring everyone in our community has the opportunity to reach their highest potential for health.
