Health Leads

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: August 1, 2014, 5:58 PM


Health Leads envisions a healthcare system in which all patients' basic resource needs are addressed as a standard part of quality care. In the clinics where we operate, physicians and other providers can prescribe food, heat, and other basic resources their patients need to be healthy, alongside prescriptions for medication. Patients then take those prescriptions to a Health Leads Desk in the clinic waiting room, where our college student Advocates work side-by-side with the patients to access community resources and public benefits.

This year, Health Leads will train and deploy nearly 1,000 college volunteers to connect over 14,500 low-income patients and their families to the resources they need to be healthy. Health Leads works in 20 adult, pediatric and prenatal clinics and in community health centers across the United States.

Health Leads thus has a two-fold impact: First, the Health Leads programs expand clinics' capacity to secure those non-medical resources necessary for their patients to be healthy. Second, Health Leads is producing a pipeline of new leaders who will have both the conviction and the ability to revolutionize healthcare.
