Our roots

This corporation of independent physicians created the Multicultural Health Foundation to reimagine the healthcare system. Their visionary approach unites social and clinical services, yielding cost savings, which are being reinvested to support community wellness.

Game-changing health care

Crisis to Wellness

Innovative project improves the health of chronically ill patients and their quality of life. Data show participants have 31% fewer ER visits, 22% fewer hospital admissions and spend 49% less time in the hospital than before enrolling.

Healthy Reinvestment

One medical group saved more than $100,000 on participating patients and re-invested a portion back into the project so they could continue to receive clinical-social support and avoid regressing to medical crisis.

Analysis and Action

The Health Equity Action Think Tank will use the data from the work with multicultural patients to understand their clinical and social challenges and share culturally appropriate interventions for their long-term wellness.

Town Hall

Experts from various cities, professions and perspectives came together on Dec. 1, 2015 in San Diego for a common purpose: To explore the effects of racism on health. They first spoke at an intimate gathering of African American faith leaders. Afterward, they addressed a town hall meeting attended by more than 500 people. The speakers, led by Dr. Camara Jones, offered candid assessments of how racism affects multicultural communities and the strategies they are using to eliminate its devastating effects.

The Foundation’s Health Equity Action Think Tank (HEATT) organized these meetings, the first in a series to raise awareness in the community about health disparities and to advocate for lasting solutions.
