According to America’s Health Rankings, an annual report published by leading philanthropies and health groups, from 1991 to 2015 Kansas fell from the 8th to the 27th healthiest state in the country. At the Kansas Health Foundation, we want Kansas to be the healthiest, most productive, most livable state in the nation. Our mission is to improve the health of all Kansans, and we envision a culture in which every Kansans can make healthy choices where they live work and play.
To guide our work in making a healthier Kansas a reality, the Foundation focuses its work in two primary areas:
- Civic Health
