Summit Health Cares believes in the importance of empowering communities – through care, education, needed supplies – elements of day-to-day life that are missing, but necessary to live a healthier, better life.
Through our Food, Health, Hope: An Answer to Diabetes, Wellness Screenings, and Health Fairs, SHC provides access to health screenings and education in underserved communities around us. Our goal is to help participants become aware of any medical conditions they have and understand how to properly treat them (e.g., through healthy foods, active routines). We work hard to remove barriers to care, empowering the community around us to transform their lives.
In addition, SHC hosts community drives to provide needed supplies to underserved communities. Two examples of this include our Fresh Start Period Initiative and Backpack Drive, helping ensure our neighbors have what they need to thrive.
