The American Hospital Association and the Health Research & Educational Trust are working to support community health through innovative campaigns, alliances, initiatives, publications and awards. This work focuses on several areas, including health equity and eliminating care disparities, community health workers, violence and safety, health system and community collaborations to advance health, and social determinants of health. Highlights from our work in community health are described in a new document, Community Health Initiatives at the American Hospital Association.
