Building the Healthiest Community in the World

strategic priorities draft3

We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful and thriving community. Yet too many of us still lack access to great health care. Many people live in neighborhoods that make healthy living a challenge. And too many of us - especially our children, moms and seniors - have unmet health needs.

Over the last year, we have been undergoing a process to better and more deeply understand those needs. This has included consulting with grantees and others in our field and through deep engagement with our Board members and staff. Perhaps most importantly, we have interviewed hundreds of community members who have shared their thoughts about how we can all achieve healthier lives.

Based on this input, we are excited to announce the strategic priorities that will drive our efforts forward over the next three years and help us achieve our ultimate goal – to become the healthiest community in the world.  

Beginning in Summer 2017, we will invite proposals to align with our new strategies, including the following areas of focus: Aging in Place and Opportunities to be Active.  Click here to download our Strategic Priorities FAQ sheet.
