The Highmark Foundation plays an important role in improving the health outcomes of the residents and communities through programs in which it provides funding support. Programs focusing on chronic disease, family health and service delivery systems provide access to care and establish broad and strong community impact. Our funding support also demonstrates new and sustainable ways to solve health problems and illustrates the effectiveness of early intervention and preventive health programs.
