The events that occur in our life influence our health today, tomorrow, and years to come. Social factors, such as structural racism and poverty, determine health outcomes to a much greater extent than biology or behavior. This life-course perspective drives our work as we strive to achieve health equity for women, birthing people, children, adolescents, and families.
We work closely with communities, providers, and policy leaders to develop and support a whole-systems approach to achieve health and racial equity. Together we identify and address barriers to health equity while elevating strengths and opportunities.
We have the expertise to:
- Provide training and tailored technical assistance to health care and community-based providers that serve birthing people, women, children, and families.
- Conduct and facilitate collaborative assessment and strategic planning processes to develop program recommendations that reflect the geographic, demographic, and socioeconomic diversity of the focus population and/or community.
- Conduct and analyze focus groups of consumers, providers, community members, and leaders to develop public health programs.
- Strengthen the capacity of organizations to monitor and improve outcomes for women, birthing people, children, and families by implementing continuous quality improvement processes.
- Collaborate with multisector partnerships to strengthen community systems of care and address social and structural determinants of health to achieve health equity.
