OUR WORK

What We Do

01

Community-Focused Research

The Foundation has a steadfast commitment to resolve unmet community health needs and close critical care gaps. Addressing public health problems is our purpose. But our work transcends data sets and research reports. Each patient is a person with a family, a community, a job, a life story. This makes the work we do as personal as it is professional.

02

Cultivating the Next Generation

The NACDS Foundation’s scholarship and mentorship programs support the next-generation of community healthcare leaders. These education-focused programs foster experience tackling real-world health challenges for patients to support a brighter tomorrow.

03

Philanthropic Partnership

Collaboration can be especially powerful in public health initiatives. It brings great minds with vast expertise together to tackle problems from various points of view. Our partners are the heart of the Foundation and keep the wheels of innovation moving; collectively, we create a family of visionaries committed to turning communities into hubs where better health happens.
