The Health Education Council exists to improve health outcomes in under-served neighborhoods by empowering the people in them to create the solutions they need most.
Our Vision of Health
Decisions that determine health are largely driven by where we live, work, play, pray, shop, and grow old.
At HEC, we work across all drivers to improve the health of entire communities by addressing the social drivers of health in historically under-served neighborhoods.
