July 2020: A New Website for This Newly Crucial Time

Dear friends,


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.

When I work with people and communities, I always think back to this sense of not belonging and it drives me to continue to do the heart-work we need to do to advance health equity.
