Who we are
Our vision is to be the leading transformative force for health equity.
Our mission is to create systemic change at the intersection of policy and equity.
What we do
The Satcher Health Leadership Institute (SHLI) aims to be the leading transformational force for health equity in policy, leadership development, and research. Rooted in the legacy of our founder, 16th U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher, SHLI’s mission is to create systemic change at the intersection of policy and equity by focusing on three priority areas: the political determinants of health, health system transformation, and mental and behavioral health. In conjunction with key strategic partners, SHLI enhances leadership among diverse learners, conducts forward-thinking research on the drivers of health inequities, and advances evidence-based policies; all in an effort to contribute to the achievement of health equity for all population groups.
We understand that in order to truly achieve health equity, we must employ a collaborative approach. This is why SHLI is proud to engage key strategic partners as we work towards the vision of a more equitable future.
The Health Equity Leadership & Exchange Network (HELEN) is a collaborative effort between the National REACH Coalition, Morehouse School of Medicine, and the National Collaborative for Health Equity.
SHLI is committed to creating, enacting, and sustaining equitable and inclusive health policies.
