WHO WE ARE

THE IMPACT WE ARE LOOKING TO MAKE
We envision a world where all people have the information, skills and opportunities to lead healthy lives. With the purpose of reducing disparities and increasing equity in health and education, we uplift and support our partners to do work across the country and around the globe in four main areas:

- School-based health and wellness
We achieve our vision and mission by linking innovation and research to practice. We drive the science through program development, applied research and evaluation and scale innovation through capacity building and dissemination.
