HPC employs a host of trained health educators, community health workers, case managers and patient navigators that work with individuals and families in their own communities. Direct services include, but are not limited to, nutrition education, cooking demonstrations, cancer and cardiovascular disease education, case management and patient navigation.

HPC is committed to serving the changing needs of those suffering from chronic diseases and those at risk of developing chronic diseases. Our programs reflect this commitment by remaining flexible and relevant to the changing needs and circumstances of the communities we serve. As such, HPC’s programs include:

Direct services for individuals and families

HPC’s direct services approach provides individuals with education and skill-building opportunities to help them better manage their chronic diseases and/or help them minimize their risk of acquiring a chronic disease.

Individual, community, and organizational capacity-building

HPC views capacity-building as a means of ensuring sustainability and long-term measurable impact in the communities we serve. We abide by the philosophy of “teaching how to fish” as opposed to doing all of the “fishing”. Thus, our capacity-building initiatives support and empower individuals, communities, and organizations to achieve their goals independently. Capacity-building initiatives include training, technical assistance, and convening around a host of issues related to health and wellbeing.

Policy and systems change

HPC's policy and system change work centers on the need to create a stronger public health infrastructure - one that supports the needs of the communities we serve and ensures health equality for all.  These initiatives are often designed to create and sustain environments that promote and encourage healthy behaviors.
