Can you imagine a community where every person can achieve optimal health, regardless of race, ethnicity, income level, gender or gender expression, geography or myriad other traits or life circumstances? That’s health equity, and it’s the vision that drives us. In partnership with many individuals and organizations in Pinellas County, we are working to end differences in health that are systemic and structural in nature to improve population health.

Health Equity

What do we mean by health equity and why is it important?

The primary aim of the Foundation is to improve overall community health by focusing on communities with the highest needs and the least available resources. 

We Believe innovative approaches that demonstrate an understanding of underlying causes, systems approaches and a commitment to prevention will strengthen our community.

We Believe every human being is entitled to maximize their potential and achieve optimal health.

We Believe the wisdom to identify our most pressing needs and solve the most intractable problems lies within the community.
