The overall goal of health equity doesn't just apply to some communities, but rather all individuals who encounter barriers on the road to better health. We must look outside the hospital walls and work in partnership with community organizations to treat the root causes of health inequities. In partnership with BJC Community Health Improvement, The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital works to advance health equity in under-resourced communities through four priority areas:
• Anchor Strategy (financial well-being)
• Diabetes & Healthy Food Access
• Infant & Maternal Health
• School Health & Wellness
Your partnership will be a catalyst for change, supporting community health improvement efforts like BJC's Community Wellness Hubs, Food as Medicine initiative, Community Doula program, and more.
