Analysis finds expanding Medicaid and increasing state efforts to enroll recently jobless Texans in Affordable Care Act health plans could prevent approaching crisis.
Grants will help 23 clinics and organizations working on the front lines serving at-risk communities through medical care, benefit assistance, and other health services.
In an online presentation with Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy, EHF’s executive chair Linnet Deily and CEO Elena Marks talk about how the health system should address non-medical, community factors that created serious health disparities during COVID-19 and EHF’s role in addressing #HealthNotJustHealthCare.
Bishop C. Andrew Doyle and EHF’s Elena Marks release an important statement condemning active and structural racism — because the health of Texas depends on it.
EHF leaders announced a plan to address the long-term effects of the COVID-19 crisis, while also helping partner nonprofits and organizations continue business operations to serve at-risk communities across Texas. The multi-approach strategy includes a business continuity grant program, loan fund, technical assistance, and research project.

“Thank you for all your work to improve #HealthNotJustHealthCare,” says EHF’s Elena Marks to American’s public health workers during National Public Health Week in a new video with other national funders of The BUILD Health Challenge.
We are grateful to our current grantees and partners who help us realize our vision of healthy communities for all. That’s why EHF’s COVID-19 response plans will focus on these organizations.
We must advance ways to work further upstream to prevent a health crisis from happening in the first place and building resiliency for when it does come.

How could efforts to address the non-medical, underlying causes of poor health like unsafe neighborhoods, access to healthy eating, and affordable health care have helped battle #COVID19 before it hit us?
EHF is currently developing a COVID-19 response plan that takes a strategic, long-term approach. While we don’t know what’s coming next in this crisis, we do know that there’s going to be a long road ahead.
In just five years of full operation, EHF has become a leading advocate for improving health by reshaping the health care conversation to focus on addressing the non-medical, root causes of poor health.
