What We Do
At Community Partners for Better Health, we're driven by a profound purpose: to reshape the health narrative for people of color in Nevada. Our efforts go beyond addressing health statistics - they are about transforming lives and fostering resilience. Our focus is steadfast - to bridge the health divide between people of color and non-minorities. Every day, we work towards a vision of health equity where everyone enjoys the highest level of health and well-being.
Empowerment: We believe in the power of knowledge and its ability to inspire change. We are dedicated to equipping individuals, organizations, and communities with the necessary tools to take control of their health and improve their quality of life.
Equity: Our unwavering commitment lies in creating a society where everyone, irrespective of their race or ethnic background, has an equal opportunity to attain their maximum health potential. We tirelessly work towards eliminating health disparities and fostering health equity.
Collaboration: As a community partnership, we value the strength of unity. Our diverse membership - ranging from healthcare professionals to faith leaders and ordinary citizens - showcases our commitment to collaboration and collective action.
Impact: We are dedicated to making a significant impact on health outcomes within communities across Nevada. We strive to decrease the prevalence and treatment gaps of preventable diseases and enhance overall health status.
Education: We view education as a cornerstone of our work. We are devoted to providing individuals, organizations, and communities with the knowledge they need to make informed health decisions. Recognizing that health is influenced by a wide array of factors, from income and education to housing and neighborhood conditions, we strive to address these social determinants to enhance overall health equity.
