PDNHF Initiative: Strategic Initiatives

From time to time, the Paso del Norte Health Foundation will invest in community initiatives and transformative projects that promote health and prevent disease in the region. From the Texas Tech Foster School of Medicine and Hunt School of Dental Medicine to the PHIX Health Information Exchange (HIE) and UTEP School of Nursing and Pharm-D program, these investments support lasting change. Grants and programs designed to provide a crisis response, such as during the 2019 El Paso shooting and COVID-19, fit this area as well. Also, by funding the operations of both the PdN Community Foundation and the Fundacion Paso del Norte, the Health Foundation is committed to leveraging its grantmaking and other resources to maximize impact.
