Giving back

On the ground, we are building on the accomplishments of our Community Health Initiatives — which reached 665,000 people in more than 50 communities across Kaiser Permanente’s regions in 2015 — to support healthy eating and active living through environmental and policy changes. We are building on our Thriving Schools work, which reached 209,000 children in more than 300 schools.
