Change is needed both locally and globally.

Parts of West Philadelphia are designated by the US government as a Promise Zone due to deep and persistent poverty in the community. Low economic resources lead to food and housing insecurity and other social needs, making it difficult for people to manage their health and wellbeing. We combine patient care with evidence-based programs to address unmet social and behavioral health needs.
