The H.E.A.T. Report began with neighborhood-level maps of several social determinants of health, distinct population vulnerabilities in Kansas City, KS, and Wyandotte County, reflecting many of those identified at the regional and county levels in the REACH/MARC 2015 Regional Health Assessment for Greater Kansas City.

Several themes emerge from this historically framed analysis that should inform contemporary program planning and policymaking:
There is nothing “natural” about today’s community health landscape or the challenges it presents.

Policies have long-term, residual and sometimes unforeseen impacts. Consideration of past policy choices can inform thoughtful design of present-day solutions.

Values influence policy. Values-infused policies shape systems, which in turn can help either to produce health and prosperity for all or to create barriers to good health and opportunity for some.
Significant change can begin through coordinated efforts focused on principles of equity and inclusion.

Today’s inequitable health landscape did not emerge overnight. Enduring solutions will require taking a long view of incremental progress and a commitment of the community will that extends beyond election cycles and institutional turnover in all sectors.

This is where you come in. You can impact your community, because Wyandotte County is representative every REDLINED, low income, historically black community in the United States.
The Heat study offers solutions through Equity, Collective Impact, Place-making, Policy and Advocacy, and more.

I AM Wyandotte.
You are Wyandotte.
We are Wyandotte.
