CHAI Community Affairs
CHAI’s Community Affairs team connects underserved children in the community to the expertise and resources of our health system.
Combining innovative research and evidence-based ideas with proven best practices, our programs aim to improve community health by:
- Improving access to healthcare
- Advancing medical or health knowledge
- Relieving or reducing the burden on government or other community efforts
Our community outreach efforts align with the 2013-16 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), a three-year blueprint for improving health in DC that Children’s National helped draft as part of the DC Healthy Communities Collaborative. The 2017-2019 CHIP is now available here.
