HEALTH EQUITY INITIATIVES: The mission of the Health Education Council is to "promote healthy communities." HEC pursues its mission through health education/ promotion programs and partnerships with organizations that serve at-risk populations, particularly the medically underserved and ethnic minorities. Our emphasis is on expanding volunteer involvement in underserved communities, facilitating empowerment, and effecting sustainable change. We operate over 25 public health programs nationwide. The Health Education Council is dedicated to promoting quality of life and community norms which include the prevention of diseases; the right to a healthy environment; respect for individual rights, cultural traditions, ethnic and linguistic diversity; shared community responsibility and involvement; and innovative and visionary responses that meet the unique needs of the populations we serve.
