Henry Ford employees walking together at the American Heart Association fundraising walk.
Henry Ford Health System is engaged in literally thousands of programs and activities that lead to healthier people and communities - from community and faith-based partnerships to school-based health, from cancer prevention and screening to diabetes education, worksite health promotion, and many, many more.
No matter how you define it, community is a sense of connection - often accompanied by a sense of caring - that unites us with each other.
Here at Henry Ford, we define "community" in terms of those we are called to serve - those who reside in our service area of southeast Michigan. Yet our community may be national or even international as our Henry Ford doctors and other staff lead groundbreaking studies that help patients everywhere, or travel to underserved parts of the world to provide medical services or continue our key role as part of the solution in national and local programs that increase health equity and improve community health.
