Arizona-based nonprofit moves to address social determinants of health in Louisiana

  • Date: 05/06/2024

Social determinants of health, such as housing and food security, access to education and transportation, are receiving increasing attention as a way to improve patient outcomes and lower health care costs. An Arizona-based nonprofit focused on addressing them recently announced its plans to expand to Louisiana, with a focus on the Lake Charles area.

Equality Health Foundation, the charitable arm of healthcare management company Equality Health LLC, is planning to partner with Louisiana organizations to help connect residents to available services, such as housing and transportation assistance; raise money for scholarships to increase diversity in the medical field; and provide direct assistance, such as food donations, to those in need.

The foundation is active in several states outside of Arizona, including Texas, and is now expanding to Louisiana and Virginia.
