Collaborating to give everyone the opportunity for a healthy, vibrant life.

No one organization can address the social determinants of health; strategic partnerships are key. Together, Kaiser Permanente and Northwest Health Foundation have been learning what works to give everyone a fair chance to live an active, safe and satisfying life. This session explores how efforts that are inclusive, collaborative, and led by the people most affected can create change that is bigger than any of us can do alone.

She collaboratively leads many of the strategic objectives for the organization's community health programs and oversees the corporate philanthropy investments into the local communities where Kaiser Permanente serves. The philanthropic portfolio has grown from just over a million dollars per year to more than twelve million during Tracy's tenure.
