Over the past few months we all have been stretching ourselves to find new ways of being in the world, new ways of showing up for each other, and new ways of connecting. Alongside that journey, we at HealthBegins have been working to improve the way that we show up, and how we share our story with all of you. As part of that, today, we are pleased to share our new website.
We are really proud of this new website — it comes at a time when the work we are engaged in is more important than ever and the opportunity to reimagine failed structures is closer than we have seen in our lifetimes. We hope that this new online hub will provide a space for us to lift up the successes and the champions, the fighters and the fights, and crystallize what we need to grow together, to learn from each other, and to keep challenging ourselves to be better.
So without further ado, please visit the new healthbegins.org. And as always, let us know what you think.

“There should be a lawyer, a legal aid lawyer, in every single clinic in the country. You don’t have to call them a legal aid lawyer. You can call them a problem solver.”
Staff Spotlight: Sara Bader, From Urban Planning to Health Equity
“I would encourage people that if they feel driven to the work of reducing inequities that there is a role for them in this work.”
Staff Spotlight: Taleen Yepremian, Determined to End Inequities in Health Care Access
“It was heartbreaking to see kids that can't see a doctor or can't see psychologists or any type of provider they need because they don't have the insurance, they don't have the access to care.”
