Advocating for our patients has been an important part of our work from the beginning. Today, we continue to advocate for our patients by supporting policies which promote safe and healthy communities. We know that the social determinants of health start when not everyone has the same access to the things they need. To that end, we engage in work around important topics such as affordable housing, driver’s licenses and the upcoming 2020 Census. We also launched an internal civics leadership-training program. RISE (Reach, Inspire, Support, Engage) is designed to guide our staff on their journey to community leadership.
We know that when everyone is counted, everyone shares in success.
