On the Front Lines with Primary Care

The Rhode Island Foundation vision for health very strongly promotes health equity. CTC is also piloting a Health Equity Challenge in Pawtucket and East Bay.

This project applies the “Pathway to Population Health Model” to these two communities and brings together community health teams, Health Equity Zones, Primary Care and a person with lived experience [in this case, diabetes].

We are working with Dr. Soma Saha, founder of WE in the World, a national expert in population health. We believe that this model with help us link clinical care to community resources and assist in identifying and addressing systemic community-based drivers of inequity and barriers to health.
