Imagine a world where all Arizonans enjoy good health, live in healthy communities, and have access to affordable health care and wellness resources.
That’s the vision of the Health Impact Team. Our goal is improved life-expectancy of all Arizonans and decreased disparities by sub-populations.
To Do Items
Improving food access, food security and food system networks for vulnerable populations.
This team helps carry out Spaces of Opportunity’s strategic plan and mission to enable all south Phoenix families to have affordable access to healthy food, active living and healthy roots in their cultures.
The team also supports Pinnacle Prevention and the Arizona Food Systems Network to increase effective public policy that supports food access and security through advocacy efforts.
Supporting inclusive communities where Arizonans have a safe and healthy place to call home.
This team is supporting the development of a statewide, customizable framework for resident-led quality of life plans (QLP). Additionally, they support the Home Matters to Arizona effort to promote and uplift positive messages about housing that is affordable, available and accessible.
Reducing opioid stigma in the workplace and increasing awareness of the opioid crisis.
The opioid epidemic impacts us all – whether we realize it or not – and one place that can provide people the support they need is the workplace. With help from many organizations and individuals in the community, this team created a toolkit for Arizona businesses. The resource is designed to support organizations that want to reduce the stigma of opioid use disorder and be better prepared to help their employees with the support and resources they need to be healthy and productive.
This team seeks to increase the number of employers and employees who champion a supportive company culture as well as offer and seek supportive resources and treatment options.
