Our Story

It is imperative that the AHA continues to build upon and use our resources to accelerate community solutions. Individuals and low socio-economic status communities, cannot improve their health without basic access to healthy food and safe water, exceptional education and job skills training, safe streets, a robust economy and access to healthcare.

The Mayo Clinic states that 40 percent of health can be attributed to socioeconomic factors, 30 percent to healthy behaviors, 20 percent to medical care and 10 percent to the environment. In order to impact health outcomes, the AHA must include a focus on social determinants, utilizing an equity lens in all that we do.

Mission: The Office of Health Equity, through EmPOWERED To Serve will amplify community-centered solutions that have measurable impact on eliminating health disparities through improvement of social determinants of health.
