ORGANIZATION TYPE: Non-for-profit advocacy

FOCUS AREA: Environment / Land Use, Food security / Nutrition, Mental health / Psychology, Public Health, Public Policy

HEALTH EQUITY INITIATIVES: Prevention Institute's approach to promoting health equity advances a deeper understanding of how fundamental causes of disparity shape community environments and how these environments, in turn, shape health. Policies and organizational practices that improve the environments in which people live, work, learn, and play are powerful tools in reducing disparities. We are committed to translating available research into effective tools, practice, and policies.
