Environmental factors have a bigger impact on health than we could possibly imagine.
Over three years of intensive study, we uncovered massive opportunities in creating/sustaining health equity among a large section of our community. Historical property value discrimination (through redlining in the 1930’s) has snowballed over time into our neighborhoods suffering from inadequate housing, lack of access to adequate health care, and environmental health injustices.
The H.E.A.T. Report
Connecting Health Inequities with Redlining
Raising the H.E.A.T.
Tackling Health Inequities Through Resident Leadership
Together, we can change that.
By identifying the factors that have created these problems, we can target the opportunity areas and begin repairing the damage. Wyandotte County is a proud community. Working together, we can help restore our homes, create awareness of health care solutions, and begin to work toward sustained improvement in our lives.

We Are Wyandotte
The We Are Wyandotte video series was released through our social media channels and website as we seek to highlight the vulnerable populations impacted by redlining and the impact felt throughout their community.
These videos provide vital information on the lives of those impacted by the factors we’re discussing, as well as possible solutions to them. From neighborhood to neighborhood, everyone involved shares one major quality: a love of community and the ardent desire to see these health outcomes improve.
