This area is encouraged to think creatively and differently regarding issues and opportunities that can bring innovation to the way we all envision to achieve and advance health.
The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. The social determinants of health can be most responsible for resulting health inequities. TCI believes in advancing health equity and achieving this requires novel approaches to positively address the social determinants of health. The range of personal, social, economic, and environmental factors that influence health status are known as determinants of health. It is the interrelationships among these factors that determine individual and population health. This interrelationship and connection to health is a connection we want to support with our resources.
TCI believes the challenges of health workforce shortages and an aging population (health workforce and general public) will require progressive and a fundamental reshaping of the way in which patient care is delivered, especially for primary care. TCI also envisions change in the point of care and the roles of the inter-disciplinary direct care team of providers needing to be factored into the needs of our future healthcare workforce.
In the past six years alone, we have funded over $9 million in community-based support to 221 projects in our four states. You and your work could be next. Please use this website and TCI staff to assist you in determining if our funding could help resource your proposed work in 2020.
