Achieving health equity in Northwest Philadelphia necessitates centering the experiences, perspectives and priorities of people and organizations living in and directly serving the neighborhoods most affected by health disparities. To that end, we are building from and expanding our existing relationships and inviting leaders in our Northwest Philadelphia catchment area to help set Foundation for Health Equity’s™ priorities and join in the foundation’s leadership and governance.
Foundation for Health Equity™ continues to play a convening role in our community, bringing together leaders and organizations to address common issues and find collaborative solutions. We are sustaining efforts to provide educational and informational resources to our community on topics related to all of our health and well-being.
