Telligen Community Initiative

Our Mission

To initiate and support innovative and forward-looking health-related projects aimed at improving health, social well-being and educational attainment.

Guiding Principles

We believe that every person deserves access to health education and services, especially the most vulnerable members of our communities. Health promotion provides opportunities for the development of community and individual capacity. Many factors shape health and health outcomes (social determinants of health), putting a premium on prevention and integration of health with other community stakeholders and sectors. At Telligen Community Initiative, we want to collaborate actively and intentionally with others that share common ground, views and beliefs. Together, we can make healthier communities; we can make the standard of living better.

–¬†Innovative healthcare workforce development programming and support.
– Support efforts to raise the capacity of organizations doing work within our strategic priority areas.
– Extend the influence of our resources by leveraging and aligning with others when possible to further our mission to benefit the underserved and vulnerable.
