Community Engagement

How we engage with our local community

The Office of Child Health Equity works with a variety of community partners to improve child health and well being, and to eliminate health inequalities. Our team aims to respond to the most pressing child health issues and community-identified needs. Over several years, we have engaged in projects that have focused on food insecurity, early education, mental health, and other social determinants of health.
