CHA’s Health Improvement Team (HIT) works together with healthcare providers, residents, community based organizations and city leadership to assess health status, determine priorities, build action plans and provide leadership around health issues that impact the community. This work is centered on addressing the root causes of health inequities. Through this structural lens, our team brings partners together to identify social and environmental factors that influence health and works to build equitable programs, policies and systems that support every person to reach their best health.
Previous student projects focused on challenging mental health stigma, SNAP gap advocacy, food security, and dental access.
