Community Health Centers (CHCs) use their role in the community to improve the social determinants of health, according to a new report from the Institute for Alternative Futures called Community Health Centers Leveraging the Social Determinants of Health. Among the case studies featured in the report are several current or former ACU members, including
- Hudson River HealthCare in Peekskill, NY
- Community Health Partners in Livingston, MT
- Kokua Kalihi Valley Comprehensive Family Services, in Honolulu, HI
Also available online are a literature review and data base of other efforts to change conditions in the community and environment to improve health. Additional submissions are welcome, if you would like to nominate a clinic that is making a difference in the wider community.
