We respectfully partner with members of the community and diverse stakeholders to address the root causes of key public health issues and develop strategies for collective action.


We foster an environment where individuals share a sense of belonging and practice acceptance and active listening so that we may engage diverse populations.


We value and respect each other's time, honor individual commitments, maintain transparency, and recognize our responsibility to community and the mission, while being flexible to changing circumstances.


We cultivate an open dialogue between stakeholders and the public to share products, information, and data in an accessible and engaging way.


We aim to provide every person, regardless of location, religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity and expression, the same opportunities to live their healthiest life and reach their full potential.
