Humana and Thomas Jefferson University Announce Collaboration
Thursday, March 30, 2023
Humana announced an endowed and immediate use gift of $15 million to Thomas Jefferson University to advance community health and health equity, and to support Jefferson’s population health efforts. Humana is working with community partners nationwide to improve health outcomes for populations that have been disenfranchised and marginalised, in areas like Greater Philadelphia and neighbouring regions.
This collaboration demonstrates shared commitment in advancing community health and health equity and co-creating solutions to address challenges for populations that have historically been marginalised and underserved in healthcare. This incredible gift will not only bolster the Jefferson College of Population Health, but will advance health-equity projects and programming across entire health system.
Like many major cities in the U.S., Philadelphia has lower health outcomes and area private-public partnerships - academic medical centres, health systems and the nation's first College of Population Health - are working to improve lives. With the addition of Humana’s robust support, these equity efforts will be amplified throughout the region and beyond.
