OUR COMMITTMENT

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.

    "Thank you, HEC, for coming to our place to hear what we need and want. At last, people can hear us and be our voice."


OUR IMPACT IN 2021

When it comes to impact, serving residents in under-served neighborhoods is our top priority. Working together, the Health Education Council, residents, law enforcement, public health, education, health care, and community organizations develop solutions tailored to a community’s specific needs. HEC serves as convener and backbone support for a variety of collective impact initiatives to improve health.
