Health Equity, Epidemiology, and Data (HEED)

Health Equity (2)

The Health Equity, Epidemiology, and Data (HEED) Unit’s vision is everyone in St. Joseph County has the resources and opportunities needed for optimal health and well-being throughout their lives. We work to assess, understand, and improve existing practices. HEED mobilizes resources to address health disparities and social factors impacting health. A person’s identity and where one is born, live, work, play, and age should not predict how long or how well one will live. Our goal is to provide evidence-based, data-driven connections between health outcomes, root causes of health, and the historical context that creates inequity.
