Who We Are

Together, we are educators, clinicians, scientists, and community leaders devoted to advancing health, well-being, equity, and life success throughout communities locally, regionally, nationally.

Our Mission

To improve community health and vitality through diverse and inclusive programs, advocacy, and research.


We develop inclusive, community-driven, and evidence-based PROGRAMS that improve physical, mental, and emotional health and performance to maximize quality of life and human potential.

We conduct community-engaged and clinical RESEARCH examining complex environmental factors that influence disease prevention, emotional well-being, educational and career success, and optimal human performance.

Collectively, our work emphasizes a whole-person, culturally-relevant approach to health, well-being and social equity across the lifespan.
