Well Beyond Medicine

Up to 80% of the impacts on children’s health take place outside medical settings. It’s time to improve their world, not just ours.

Supporting Children’s Health Everywhere

At Nemours Children’s Health, we believe in supporting each child’s whole health — the social, economic, behavioral and environmental factors that also affect their lives. To do that, we’re not just thinking differently, we’re doing differently. Expanding on our clinical expertise, we’re transforming children’s health in four strategic areas:

  1. Understanding our community
  2. Creating children’s health programs
  3. Partnering with community organizations
  4. Reforming health payments and other policies
