Better health. One connection at a time.
What We Do
We believe that a different kind of healthcare is possible…and we work to fulfill this vision.
Health Leads envisions a healthcare system that addresses all patients’ basic resource needs as a standard part of quality care.
Health Leads’ mission is to catalyze this healthcare system by connecting patients with the basic resources they need to be healthy, and in doing so build leaders with the conviction and ability to champion quality care for all patients.
In the clinics where we operate, physicians and other providers can prescribe food, heat, and other basic resources their patients need to be healthy, alongside prescriptions for medication. Patients then take those prescriptions to a Health Leads Desk in the clinic waiting room, where our college student Advocates work side-by-side with the patients to access community resources and public benefits.
