At Ashland Community Hospital Foundation we believe that every person should have the opportunity to attain their full health potential. We recognize that systemic barriers and the social determinants of health prevent individuals from doing so.

Our actionable goals include:
- Expanding board membership to reflect the diverse communities we support.
- Educating board and staff members about diversity, equity and inclusion, health equity, and the social determinants of health through learning sessions.
- Engaging community members to learn what changes would be the most impactful and empower them to live their full health potential.
- Ensuring our grantmaking reflects our vision of advancing equitable approaches to community health and wellness.
- Reviewing our scholarship application and selection process to ensure it is equitable for all eligible applicants.
As we learn and grow our intention is to be thoughtful and deliberate in our journey.
