BJC Community Health Improvement aims to eliminate health disparities in under-resourced communities and give all people the opportunity for a healthy, productive life. This proactive approach focuses on the social and economic factors that are root causes of health inequities.
By removing the barriers to health in everyday life, BJC Community Health Improvement will elevate the overall well-being of those in communities that have endured generations of disinvestment.
BJC is leveraging its economic power to support community and economic development, advance diverse business growth, and expand workforce diversity. By doing so, BJC will create more opportunities for all people to thrive.
BJC is addressing inequities in diabetes by promoting healthy food access and active lifestyles. BJC will increase awareness of proper nutrition and give people, including youth, the tools to prevent and manage Type 2 diabetes.
BJC is committed to an environment that supports the health and well-being of Black infants and mothers. We are working to eliminate racial disparities by partnering with doulas and building clinical care teams that reflect the community.
BJC is collaborating with schools in their efforts to support the health and well-being of their students and families, year-round. BJC will increase access to existing services and behavioral health programming in schools and community hubs.
