Our health organization is rooted in the understanding that optimal health remains out of reach for many in this country due to barriers beyond their control. This is where we come in as believers that “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” are among our unalienable rights—and none are really possible without our health. We view our work to build a healthier, sustainable future as a fundamental American ideal and inspiration. We are On Your Side with actions to advance health equity, improve Veterans care, and foster healthier, safer environments.
Advancing Health Equity
We fundamentally understand that the so-called social determinants of health should really be called political determinants of health given so many are heavily influenced by public policy and political forces. If you believe in building a healthier future together, we are On Your Side!
