Project Summary: 

Health Research for Action conducted a strategic analysis of population health needs in Santa Clara and Northern San Benito counties to identify opportunities for priority programming, grantmaking, and advocacy for The Health Trust (THT) over the next 10 years.

Policy, Practice or Research Impacts: 

The Health Trust drew from the strategic analysis in establishing new programmatic initiatives. Through its “Healthy Aging” initiative, the Health Trust is promoting physical activity, social engagement, and independent community living. The “Healthy Communities” initiative integrates the Health Trust’s prevention work in chronic disease management and oral health with a broader focus on reducing health disparities in Silicon Valley.
