Social Determinants of Health

The Foundation’s research identified the following as leading health issues with the most significant potential impact on community health outcomes.

While the Foundation for a Healthy High Point is committed to impacting all social determinants, it also recognizes that other organizations and foundations are highly engaged with the social determinants of Economic Stability and Education Access & Quality. With that in mind, the Foundation will continue to invest in areas it has already identified as critical (i.e., maternal & child health, early childhood education, and behavioral health) and lean in more on the social determinants of Neighborhood & Built Environment, Healthcare Access & Quality, and Social & Community Context.

Within future requests for proposals, the Foundation will identify specific goals and targets for measuring progress and impact in each of the prioritized social determinants of health with the broad goal of reducing health disparities in the Greater High Point community.
