- Explore how to leverage anchor institutions’ missions for universities, hospitals, and health systems to uplift community conditions, advance health equity, and build a culture of health by highlighting promising models
- Explore how to shape and use an anchor institution mission for businesses, non-profit foundations, and municipalities to advance health equity and a culture of health in communities highlighting promising models
- Catalyze purposeful action by sharing lessons learned to enable anchor institutions to establish and implement their own approach to advancing health equity and building a culture of health
