The ReThink Health Approach

We work with visionary leaders to transform health at the regional level – their neighborhoods, cities, counties, or states. We promote broad and systemic thinking that allows leaders to step outside their own frames of reference so they can better see how the various parts of the system interact in unexpected ways and determine how and where they can exert influence. Our hope is that by demonstrating regional success, we inspire transformation across the country.

Stories From the Field

"These short-term solutions are really just driving a vicious cycle of poor health, higher costs, and less insurance coverage. The long-term solution is to interrupt that cycle by addressing the health status of the population."
