In our largely rural state, we experience barriers to health and access to healthcare that are not seen in more urban states. When existing national solutions may not fit Kansas communities, customized, research-based solutions are necessary.

Initiatives are selected in promising areas where proven strategies for success do not yet exist. Our partners are blazing a trail into a healthier future – exploring how to improve the social determinants of health, increase access to care, and streamline the coordination of services.
