KHF is committed to our mission of improving the health of all Kansans. Every day we seek to make progress in five key impact areas (access to care, physical activity, healthy food access, civic engagement and tobacco use). Throughout this section, we provide details of how we’re trying to make these impacts, including through two primary program areas: Health Equity and Civic Health.
Tremendous differences in health outcomes still exist for many groups and communities. KHF is working to reduce health disparities related to social and economic factors.Read More

Every two years, the Kansas Health Foundation invites recognition grant recipients and applicants to attend a conference designed just for them. Not only is it a time of celebration and acknowledgment of their efforts, it also provides an opportunity to help connect awardees with helpful information and resources. The 2017 Kansas Health Foundation Learning conference will be held April 6 and 7, for previous 2015 and 2016 recognition grant recipients and applicants. Registration is open and space is currently available for other KHF applicants and grantees, on a first come first serve basis, to be able to attend the conference.
