The GRHF strives to inspire community-based health initiatives that align with the Foundation’s mission and vision. We also value the broad definition of health, believing there is much more to health than health care. Health is influenced by many factors, including socioeconomic conditions, the built environment, education, income and individual behavior choices – factors that have come to be known as the Social Determinants of Health.
We believe that our greatest opportunity is our ability to partner with state and local entities to leverage funds resulting in greater impact. Therefore, the GRHF is making efforts to strategically focus on the areas of health that have a large, sustainable impact on the health of the Gogebic Range while also aligning our priorities with local and regional efforts
