Saint Luke's Foundation

Healthy People

We catalyze and sustain opportunities to improve
community health by promoting the health home
model of care and reducing obesity.

At Saint Luke’s Foundation, good health is an important pillar of our mission.

Our Healthy People program strategy catalyzes and sustains opportunities to improve community health through improving and enhancing health care delivery and the reduction of obesity.  We want to improve the health of our community by investing in efforts upstream – before problems arise.

Through this strategy we invest in efforts to build the capacity of organizations to improve the integration of health services with engaged and connected community members at the core.  We also seek to influence policies that increase healthy eating and active living and the reduction of obesity.
