Clinical-Community Partnerships

Bringing health care and communities together to improve lifelong well-being

Optimal health cannot be achieved without going beyond the health care system itself. Stressors like inadequate housing, unemployment, poor nutrition, and poverty—known as “social determinants of health”—can cause lasting, lifelong effects on physical and emotional well-being. UHF works at the intersection of health care, social service agencies, and communities to promote a comprehensive approach to helping patients and families live long, healthy, and productive lives.
