We work with visionary leaders to transform health at the regional level – their neighborhoods, cities, counties, or states.

Our hope is that by demonstrating regional success, we inspire transformation across the country.

One of The Rippel Foundation’s most important contributions to the field of population health is the ReThink Health Dynamics Model, which has been freely available and widely used since its launch seven years ago.
