Setting Equal Tables

to Drive Decisions and Priorities

HealthierHere is governed by a 27-member cross-sector Governing Board that stewards the organization’s overall mission, strategic plan, and progress, with support from committees and workgroups. With the goal of setting equal tables for our decision-making and priorities, over half of our Governing Board seats are designated for community-based organizations, Tribes, community members and consumers.
