We want you to know we continue our work in fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans. We are doing so with everyone’s health and safety in mind as we carry out our mission of being a relentless force for longer, healthier lives.
Making an Impact in Austin
Social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. They include factors like income, education, physical environment and access to care. Austin’s Eastern Crescent is the geographical focus of most of our SDoH work as it is the area with the most disparities related to housing, transportation access, access to nutritious foods and COVID-19.
